No one, other than you, has said any such thing. I would argue that the decision to work with and trust the C level team to make a firm recommendation at this time is precisely being *in touch* with the needs of the organization at this time. An out-of-touch board would dictate a particular decision without an empowering consultation with the most informed and relevant stakeholders. I'm glad we aren't doing that. --Jimbo _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
