Most of you have seen the plans for the new Working Group that we sent
out two weeks ago. The deadline is getting closer, so I wanted to send a
reminder to all of you to take a look and submit a proposal if you're
interested in being considered to join this group, which will be integral
in planning the future of the Education Programs in the United States and
A lot of people have indicated interest (and there are already a good
number of proposals), but please note that we have added a tab about
the current and future role of the Wikimedia Foundation . This short
list should give many of you an idea of the role the new Education Program
Structure should serve as of May 2013.
Since we have just recently added this information for your own perspective
when submitting a proposal, we're *extending the deadline* to apply for the
Working Group until this *Monday, May 7th*. The Selection Committee will
begin reviewing proposals the following Tuesday and will still announce the
Working Group members on May 14th.
Please reach out to any of us if you have questions, concerns, or comments!
