Affiliate-selected Board seats 2019 process: affiliates' representativeEdit

Hello. The names of the people who will vote on behalf of each group to select the next two Board members are now at m:Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Eligible entities. Please contact me directly as soon as possible if you need any kind of corrections there. There's only a few hours left to endorse candidates, and only the official voter can do that. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can make a difference with the necessary translations.

Appreciate your attention and your support so far! Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 12:15, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Last hours to voteEdit

Hi, please review Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Eligible entities (last update: yesterday) to make sure your representative voted in the Affiliate-selected_Board_seats/2019 process. This is the deadline in your timezone. Contact me directly (via email) for any issues. Thanks, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) and the Election Facilitators.

Introducing Wikimedia Space: A platform for movement news and organizationsEdit

Hi Wikimedia movement affiliates/Noticeboard,
I’m writing to let you know that the Community Engagement department [1]at the Wikimedia Foundation is launching a new platform, Wikimedia Space. Here, you will find stories for and by contributors to the Wikimedia movement, and a space for discussions of different topics.

We know that finding information about Wikimedia activities and processes is very complicated, which makes the learning curve to enter our movement and be successful afterwards, really steep. By centralizing community stories and conversations in one shared space, we believe we are facilitating access and discoverability of topics across the movement, improving, in turn, connections among Wikimedians.

As an affiliated organization to the Wikimedia Foundation, we hope that you can share this platform with your local community, and we count on you to encourage them to add their voices. If you’d like to contribute stories, and overall, participate in the discussion section, please read our blogging guidelines and our code of conduct and join the conversation. Find more information about the project on its page on Meta.

Looking forward to seeing you at Wikimedia Space,
María Cruz, Communications and Outreach Manager, Wikimedia Foundation.
