I wanted to share with you an announcement <http://blog.wikimedia.org/2016/05/11/annette-campbell-white-endowment/> I just posted to the Wikimedia blog. The WMF Board of Trustees has appointed Annette Campbell-White as one of the founding members of the Wikimedia Endowment Advisory Board.
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 resolution <https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Establishment_of_Endowment> 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. If you have thoughts on the endowment, this is still a good place on meta <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Endowment_Essay> to have a discussion. Please join me in welcoming and congratulating Annette!
