Opportunities open for the Affiliations Committee, Ombuds commission, and the Case Review Committee
Hi everyone! The Affiliations Committee (AffCom), Ombuds commission (OC), and the Case Review Committee (CRC) are looking for new members. These volunteer groups provide important structural and oversight support for the community and movement. People are encouraged to nominate themselves or encourage others they feel would contribute to these groups to apply. There is more information about the roles of the groups, the skills needed, and the opportunity to apply on the Meta-wiki page.
If you are aware of participants in your affiliate who may be interested in these roles, please share this message with them.
Wikimedia Foundation Affiliates Strategy: Summary and Report
Dear Wikimedia affiliate,
Last year, the Wikimedia Foundation Board announced they started the process with creating an Affiliates Strategy in collaboration with the Affiliations Committee, the affiliates, and the broader communities with the intention to develop a strategy that will help guide the Foundation’s immediate work in supporting affiliates for the next few years, with a primary focus on the recognition process, as a direct responsibility of the Board.
Over several months, the Wikimedia Foundation Board engaged with an outside consultant to drive a review process of what work the Foundation was doing to support affiliates. The end goal was to have several recommended actions.
You can read more about the findings and the recommendations on this Meta-Wiki page.
Does anyone have a connection with the Frick Art Reference Library
I saw a small exhibition of work by Albert Wainwright (Q96657484) at the Wolfsonian-FIU (Q2178180) in Miami. I see that Wainwright died in 1943, & the UK has life +70 copyright laws, so his work is in the public domain. I see that the Frick Art Reference Library Photoarchive (Q5503389) has an example of his work. The Frick Art Reference Library is located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, & they probably have many other items whose copyright has expired. I would like to get these on Commons, & was wondering how best to contact the Frick to work out some sort of arrangement. Peaceray (talk) 16:02, 10 December 2023 (UTC)
