Hello everyone,

( Read this message in other languages on Meta: ‎العربية • deutsch • español • français • Русский • 中文)

You are invited to join our next Conversation with the Trustees on 17 February at 18:30 UTC (check your local time).

The event is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees’ Community Affairs Committee (CAC). The Board of Trustees is a volunteer body of movement leaders and external experts in charge of guiding the Wikimedia Foundation and ensuring its accountability. This forum is an opportunity for the community to directly engage with Trustees and talk openly about our work. 

We will be hosting this conversation on Zoom with a live YouTube stream.

The call will be 90 minutes: a 10 minute introduction, then a 20 minute update from Trustees and Wikimedia Foundation staff, and the remaining time dedicated to open Q&A and conversation.

We want to make these calls interactive, so we encourage as many of you as possible to join us directly in Zoom. All community members in good standing will be able to join us there. Request the Zoom link by emailing askcac@wikimedia.org.

If you would like to be added to a list to receive emails with Zoom links for these calls in the future, please indicate that in your email.

We will work to provide interpretation for languages with five or more interested community members. To request interpretation, please email askcac@wikimedia.org. You can do this up until 5 days before the meeting to allow us to make the necessary arrangements. 

Closer to the date we will send out a reminder with more information about the agenda, but for now please save the date and register for the Zoom room!

A final note -- in our last meeting (October 2021), we shared that we plan to meet again on December 2021. This meeting was pushed to Jan, and then Feb, in order to allow for more of the Trustees and Foundation leadership to join, including our new CEO.

We have made necessary arrangements so that this year we will be able to meet the community more regularly (every other month). You will find the planned dates of future meetings throughout the year on Meta, so you can hopefully "save the date" in advance.

Hoping to see as many of you as possible,

Shani (on behalf of the CAC).

Shani Evenstein Sigalov

Vice Chair, Board of Trustees
