Resolution talk:Appointing and authorizing a transition committee in the search of a new Executive Director

From the Wikimedia Foundation Governance Wiki

I must say, I was just a little surprised to not see some language at the bottom of this resolution thanking Sue for her past and ongoing efforts leading the Wikimedia Foundation. Some bodies/organizations pass resolutions that are unrelated to their official work/duties. I'm not sure if the Wikimedia Foundation Board does this very often (if ever). I guess I'd have to look at the index. Alternately, in place of a resolution, sometimes a body or organization will issue a formal statement. I think it would be nice to have a separate resolution or statement thanking Sue for her service and/or include some language to that effect in the resolution appointing the next Executive Director. --MZMcBride (talk) 01:54, 30 March 2013 (UTC)[reply]

I expect there will be further statements or resolutions later; for now, there is the statement from Kat on Wikimedia-l that makes clear everything is cordial between Sue and the Board. -- Phoebe (talk) 17:37, 31 March 2013 (UTC)[reply]
