I am looking forward to the year ahead too. However, for the record, I am 
disappointed with several aspects of the AP document as currently written, and 
it is not a document that I would have approved in its current form. I think 
that WMF should have its APs scrubbed by an uninvolved expert party, similar to 
how the FDC scrubs the APs of Wikimedia affiliates that submit AP funding 
requests to WMF. I am unhappy about WMF approving its own APs, particularly 
given how the WMF APs consistently fail to meet my expectations, and if given 
the choice I would put a stop to this practice.

[Wikimedia-l] The Wikimedia Foundation's FY18-19 Annual Plan is
        on Meta-wiki 
Hi all,

The Wikimedia Foundation is pleased to announce that our final FY18-19
Annual Plan[1] is now available on Meta. The Annual Plan was approved by
the Board of Trustees on June 12th.

This Annual Plan remains organized around three goals that focus on making
critical improvements to our systems and structures to ensure that we’re
better positioned for our ongoing work against the strategic direction[2].
The Foundation’s goals for this year should not only move us closer to
knowledge equity and service, but will prepare us to execute against the 3
to 5 year strategic plan which we intend to develop this year in order to
guide the Foundation’s work into the future.

From all of us here at the Foundation, we thank everyone who engaged with
the process by asking questions and providing feedback on the Annual Plan
throughout its development. This insight continues to push us to improve
our planning, our programs, and the way that we share our work.  Based on
this feedback and our continued refinement of our plans, we have updated
the budget and several of the specific program plans that are linked in the
Appendix.

We look forward to the year ahead!
Katherine
