Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees meeting
June 6, 2012, 17:00-18:30 UTC
- In attendance: Ting Chen, Phoebe Ayers, Jan-Bart de Vreede, Samuel Klein, Kat Walsh, Bishakha Datta, Matt Halprin, Stu West, Arne Klempert, Sue Gardner (WMF's Executive Director), Patricio Lorente and Alice Wiegand as observers.
- Absent: Jimmy Wales.
The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the final draft of the Wikimedia Foundation 2012-13 Annual Plan, and served as a chance to ask questions of Sue and Stu.
The meeting was opened at 17:00 UTC by Ting. Each trustee was asked to express thoughts and questions about the plan. Sue then took time to answer questions that were raised.
Discussion themes included:
- Focus, and whether this plan is focused enough for the Wikimedia Foundation to achieve key goals;
- "Core" expenses versus "non-core" expenses;
- Clarifying reserves growth and appropriate reserves target.
The next step will be online Board mailing list discussion until June 15.
The meeting was adjourned at 18:30 UTC.
