Hello! Do you or someone you know have some great communication skills or ideas to offer the Wikimedia movement? If so, this might be an exciting opportunity to engage with some high-level work for Wikimedia communications!
As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Communications department is seeking 10-15 individuals to work with us over the next three years to deepen our department's work with the community and increase overall support for communications work across the movement. If you are interested in joining the new 10-15 person Communications committee, please send an email to gvar...@wikimedia.org by 17 April 2019 and include: 1. Acknowledgement that this is a three-year appointment and you are indeed interested and able to serve. 2. Your community and staff (if you have any) usernames which you use on Wikimedia projects. Also any information on other roles you may have within the movement (please include both staff and volunteer roles). Please note that you must be in good standing (ie. not blocked) on the wikis to participate. 3. A brief statement on why you would like to serve on the Communications committee, and in particular what you believe you can bring to the group and what you hope to gain from the experience. 4. A brief statement on what ideas, if any, you have for what the new Communications committee could do or how the Foundation could help support its efforts. If you are interested, but need a little more time to get your responses together, no problem - just send me an email (gvar...@wikimedia.org) before 17 April 2019 so I know you are interested. The inaugural committee will be selected by the Communications department in the coming weeks. We are hoping to find a diverse group of individuals from around the world to bring their regional, cultural, and language expertise to our communications work. Please share this invitation with others in your Wikimedia networks and communities who you believe may be interested. Thank you! -greg  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Communications_committee/Call_for_members_-_March_2019 -- Gregory Varnum (pronouns - he/his/him) Communications Strategist Wikimedia Foundation <https://wikimediafoundation.org/> _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l 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>
