Hello!

I am thrilled to announce the inaugural members of the new Wikimedia
Foundation Communications Committee have been selected. These eleven
community members were chosen from an impressive group of applicants. We
carefully reviewed each candidate, and made our final selections based in
part on the overall diversity and skillset of the group as a whole.

Please join me in congratulating our inaugural members:

1. Fawaz Tairou (User:Fawaz.tairou) - Benin
2. Anne Clin (User:Risker) - Canada
3. Justice Okai-Allotey (User:Owula kpakpo) - Ghana
4. Paulina Lordméndez (User:Paulina Lordméndez) - Mexico
5. Maiken Hagemeister (User:Maiken Hagemeister (WMDE)) - Germany
6. Itzik Edri (User:Itzike) - Israel
7. Mohammed Sadat Abdulai (User:Masssly) - Ghana
8. Nahid Sultan (User:NahidSultan) - Bangladesh
9. Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (User:KCVelaga) - India
10. Habib Mhenni (User:Dyolf77) - Tunisia
11. Virginia Díez (User:Virginia Díez (WMES)) - Spain

The inaugural committee will begin working with the Wikimedia Foundation
Communications department in the coming months to develop key goals and
processes toward better collaboration between the department and community
leaders. We are hopeful and excited that this group will open new avenues
for discussion, sharing and highlighting the work of the movement. You can
find out more about the committee, its progress, and how to engage directly
with members via their Meta-Wiki page:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/ComCom.

We also want to encourage folks interested in movement communications to
join the Movement communications group (
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MoveCom), which has replaced the space for
large group discussion of movement communications served by the previous
iteration of this committee.

Again, congratulations to our inaugural members and thank you to everyone
who showed interest in joining!
