A few thoughts - I realise there are lots of things missing from this
list, but this should provide a starting point:

Make the press aware that there's more to Wikimedia than Wikipedia.
Make sure committees aren't going astray.
In conjunction with the chapter's committee, make sure every chapter
is allowed official recognition and have a clear process for obtaining
that (Wikimedia UK is still denied this recognition).
Expand the Board via election (possibly Wikicouncil style elections)
and not via appointment.
Add an advisory Board.
Make sure there's clear guidance and process for people wanting to use
Wikimedia logos internally and externally, including derivatives on
the projects.
Update and revise the bylaws with community input.
Ensure the tech committee have the authority to buy necessary hardware.
Ensure all Board members have full access to private wikis and mailing
lists when needed (this isn't the same as expecting them to follow all
of those lists).
