Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Deutschland: general assembly and new Supervisory Board

 Hi Lukas,Thanks for sharing this update. I'm curious about the following 
change the group has made:Additionally, our members added a new rule concerning 
appointed officers to ensure that at least one third of theboard is of non-male 
or non-female gender.
Can you provide some background as to why this rule was introduced and how it 
was negotiated?
Thanks and regards,Heather(Aotearoa New Zealand User Group)

 Dear fellow Wikimedians,

On Sunday, Wikimedia Deutschland held its 25th and first-ever virtual
general assembly with over 250 members attending.

Our members elected a new Supervisory Board, which consists of 7 elected
members:

* Lukas Mezger (chair, re-elected)

* Daniel Reisener (treasurer, re-elected)

* Sabria David (re-elected)

* Kilian Kluge (re-elected)

* Christina Dinar

* Valerie Mocker

* Alice Wiegand

Christina Dinar and Valerie Mocker are new to the board, so please join me
in welcoming them as well as in welcoming back Alice Wiegand. We are
particularly pleased that our measures to increase gender diversity have
been successful and that our elected board now consists of four women and
three men.

I would like to wholeheartedly thank our departing elected board members
Harald Krichel, Peter Dewald, and Marcus Cyron, and our departing appointed
members Helene Hahn and Mirjam Stegherr for the great work and their
commitment to Wikimedia Deutschland over the past years.

Sabine Zepp and Lenia Zinßer were elected as auditors. I would like to
express my gratitude to our departing auditors Daniel Baur, who has been
serving the association over so many years, and Lena Stammler.

The general assembly also changed our bylaws to allow for virtual board
meetings and remote board votes. Additionally, our members added a new rule
concerning appointed officers to ensure that at least one third of the
board is of non-male or non-female gender. The general assembly also
approved changes to our strategy and formally approved of the board’s and
the executive director’s actions for 2019.

The new board will reconvene shortly to discuss Movement Strategy matters,
among others, and I am very much looking forward to working together with
the new team.

Kind regards,

Lukas

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Deutschland: general assembly and new Supervisory Board

2020-06-22 Thread Lukas Mezger
Dear fellow Wikimedians,

general assembly with over 250 members attending.

Our members elected a new Supervisory Board, which consists of 7 elected
members:

* Lukas Mezger (chair, re-elected)

* Daniel Reisener (treasurer, re-elected)

* Sabria David (re-elected)

* Kilian Kluge (re-elected)

* Christina Dinar

* Valerie Mocker

* Alice Wiegand

Christina Dinar and Valerie Mocker are new to the board, so please join me
in welcoming them as well as in welcoming back Alice Wiegand. We are
particularly pleased that our measures to increase gender diversity have
been successful and that our elected board now consists of four women and
three men.

I would like to wholeheartedly thank our departing elected board members
Harald Krichel, Peter Dewald, and Marcus Cyron, and our departing appointed
members Helene Hahn and Mirjam Stegherr for the great work and their
commitment to Wikimedia Deutschland over the past years.

Sabine Zepp and Lenia Zinßer were elected as auditors. I would like to
express my gratitude to our departing auditors Daniel Baur, who has been

The new board will reconvene shortly to discuss Movement Strategy matters,

the new team.
