> Dear fellow Wikimedians,
> I am happy to announce that the  Wikimedia Deutschland supervisory board
> has appointed Larissa Borcka and Raimond Spekking as additional members to
> the board.
> Larissa is committed to the digital development of cultural institutions.
> As curator of digital development for the S?rmlands museum in Sweden, she
> is responsible for digitisation projects and cooperation with Wikipedia and
> Wikimedia Commons. On the board, she will bring the perspective of cultural
> institutions to Wikimedia projects such as Wikidata and Wikibase. Raimond has
> been a Wikipedian and a Commons photographer for many years, is active in
> the Volunteer Response Team and continues to develop the MediaWiki
> software. On our board, he strives to strengthen the community's
> perspective and contribute his expertise at the interface between content
> creation and technology.
> Both will be full members of the board until the next board elections at
> the general assembly in mid-2024 and we are very much looking forward to
> working with them.
> The Wikimedia Deutschland board consists of up to 9 members
> <>. Seven members
> are elected by the general assembly for a two-year term. After the
> election, the seven board members can appoint up to two additional members
> to the board. To complement the competences of the board after the
> elections in May, we were looking for two specific profiles: One in the
> field of "active Wikipedians"; a person who contributes content to
> Wikipedia and thus additionally strengthens this perspective in discussions
> and decisions. And one in the field of ?technology / open structured data?;
> a person with expertise and a feel for the developments and opportunities
> of open structured data in the digital ecosystem, ideally with expertise in
> Wikidata and Wikibase. I am delighted that with Larissa and Raimond we were
> able to attract two people with a lot of experience and passion for free
> knowledge to join our supervisory board.
> Please join me in welcoming Larissa and Raimond!
> Alice.
