Hello Everyone!

We're sending out a call for new Grant Advisory Committee (GAC) members!

The GAC are community volunteers who are explicitly invited[1] to review and evaluate grant proposals made in the Wikimedia Foundation Project and Event Grants Program[2], and offer advice to both grant applicants and the Foundation.

We review a large number of WLM and other Wiki Loves proposals each year. It would be great to have more experts in this area on the committee!

Read all about it on the Candidates page[3]. The deadline for signing up for this round is December 30, 2014, so be sure to step forward before then. New members will be inducted by the middle of January 2015.

Please help this message reach as many people as possible, by relaying it to appropriate lists and village pumps. 

And many thanks to our current and former GAC members[4]!
