[Foundation-l] Announcing my departure from the Wikimedia Foundation

It is with deep regret that I tell you I will be leaving the staff of 
the Wikimedia Foundation at the end of December.

I'm leaving the staff, but I will continue to be involved with the 
Wikimedia movement as a volunteer, both as a contributor and in the 
organization of the annual Wikimania conference.  Much of my work with 
Wikimedia will continue, except now I will be doing it as a volunteer 
rather than as a paid staff person.

The Wikimedia Foundation is not planning to hire another volunteer 
coordinator to look after the specific range of work I've been doing, so 
if you are unsure about who will handle things I have been responsible 
for, please feel free to ask me, and we'll work it out over the next 
several months.

I have decided to continue my education and have begun the process of 
enrolling in post-graduate studies to pursue a theological path that 
I've been considering for many years.

I have very much enjoyed my time with the Wikimedia Foundation, and I 
look forward to continuing to work alongside you all, as a Wikimedia 
volunteer.  I enjoy working with each and every one of you.

Cary Bass
Volunteer Coordinator
Wikimedia Foundation
