Thanks for this update, Lukas and all.

> 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
