Dear Wikimedians, We are pleased to inform you that the WMF Board of Trustees has come to a decision about which four candidates to appoint to the FDC for the next 2 years. It wasn't easy, as the caliber of candidates[*] was extremely high, and their range of skills and expertise extremely impressive.
The resolution is now published in https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Resolution:Funds_Dissemination_Committee_Membership_2016 We have selected four appointees as follows: 1) Garfield Byrd (User:Gtbiv) 2) Anne Clin (User:Risker) 3) Bishakha Datta (User:Bishdatta) 4) Candelaria Laspeñas (User:Cande_laspe) On behalf of the Board, we want to thank Dumisani, Matanya and Osmar for their service to the FDC. We deeply appreciate the years they have served the committee and all the work they have done during many rounds of FDC recommendations. Their insights, perspectives and experiences have been invaluable to the work of the committee, and have gone a long way in shaping the development of the APG process into a successful and important part of grant-making in the Wikimedia world. We hope they will continue to remain engaged in the movement in different ways in the years ahead. We also want to thank all the candidates that participated in this round of nominations, and encourage them to consider re-applying for the committee next year, when new members will be elected to serve on the committee. Best, Dariusz & Guy _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
