New WMF Board Appointments

Translate this post

Among the many major activities and goings-on at this year’s Wikimania was a decision from our Board of Trustees about new appointments to the WMF Board.
In a press release sent out yesterday, Jan-Bart De Vreede, Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees announced that fellow Board member Michael Snow will assume the role of Chair of the Board of Trustees.  Long-standing Board member Florence Devouard stepped down as Board Chair, however we are very pleased to announce that she will assume a seat on the Wikimedia Advisory Board.
The Board also took the opportunity to formally welcome new Board member Ting Chen, who was elected by the Wikimedia community during the recent Board seat election.
Welcome Ting Chen, and congratulations Michael!
Jay Walsh, Head of Communications<
