I have served on the Board for 9 months as an elected member (see my 2006 platform). I have also acted as Executive Secretary of the Board during this time. The Board I joined has overseen some of the most significant changes in the history of the Foundation. As an organization, we have
substantially expanded our international staff, including the new position of Volunteer Coordinator to better work with our global community.
Progress on other fronts has been heating up (license compatibility, institutional partnerships such as the Encyclopedia of Life, search for a permanent Executive Director, plans for the next fundraiser, and so on). I hope I will be able to continue my work in these and other areas. :-) Please see "9 months of wiki madness" for a more personal view of my time on the Board so far and my hopes for the future. Thank you!
