> The Board of Wikimedia UK today announced the appointment of Chris Keating as 
> its new Chair. This appointment is effective immediately.
> Doug Taylor, another leading Wikimedian with thirty years experience of the 
> non-profit and charity sectors was appointed Vice Chair in support.
> Chris has a background in fundraising and campaigning, and he is a 
> long-standing Wikipedia editor and administrator. Elected to the Board of 
> Wikimedia UK in April 2011, his main priority is making sure Wikimedia UK 
> communicates well with the Wikimedia community and with our other supporters. 
> His skills and experience will be invaluable as he leads us through a busy, 
> productive and important period.
> The Board wishes to thank Ashley Van Haeften for his excellent contributions 
> as Chair of our charity. There is no doubt that he will continue to perform 
> well as a Trustee and volunteer, particularly in his GLAM (Galleries, 
> Libraries, Archives and Museums) work, where he is a leader in the field. He 
> continues as Chair of the Wikimedia Chapters Association
> This change in leadership will not affect the day to day operations of 
> Wikimedia UK as a functioning charity. The Board looks forward to supporting 
> the Wikimedia community as we continue to work towards our objectives.
