Annette has been a supporter of WMF since 2010. She frequently attends our
events and a few staff members have gotten to know her. We could not be
more thrilled to have her stepping up her involvement and sharing her
expertise for the benefit of the movement.
As background on the the process: In December, the WMF board passed a
creating the endowment. As part of that, they are appointing the first
three founding members of the Endowment Advisory Board. Jimmy Wales was
appointed in December and the board appointed Annette Campbell-White at
their meeting last month in Berlin.
