Dear fellow Wikimedians, On Sunday, Wikimedia Deutschland held its 25th and first-ever virtual general assembly with over 250 members attending.
Our members elected a new Supervisory Board, which consists of 7 elected members: * Lukas Mezger (chair, re-elected) * Daniel Reisener (treasurer, re-elected) * Sabria David (re-elected) * Kilian Kluge (re-elected) * Christina Dinar * Valerie Mocker * Alice Wiegand Christina Dinar and Valerie Mocker are new to the board, so please join me in welcoming them as well as in welcoming back Alice Wiegand. We are particularly pleased that our measures to increase gender diversity have been successful and that our elected board now consists of four women and three men. I would like to wholeheartedly thank our departing elected board members Harald Krichel, Peter Dewald, and Marcus Cyron, and our departing appointed members Helene Hahn and Mirjam Stegherr for the great work and their commitment to Wikimedia Deutschland over the past years. Sabine Zepp and Lenia Zinßer were elected as auditors. I would like to express my gratitude to our departing auditors Daniel Baur, who has been serving the association over so many years, and Lena Stammler. The general assembly also changed our bylaws to allow for virtual board meetings and remote board votes. Additionally, our members added a new rule concerning appointed officers to ensure that at least one third of the board is of non-male or non-female gender. The general assembly also approved changes to our strategy and formally approved of the board’s and the executive director’s actions for 2019. The new board will reconvene shortly to discuss Movement Strategy matters, among others, and I am very much looking forward to working together with the new team. Kind regards, Lukas _______________________________________________ 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: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
