Cathy Casserly, October 27th, 2011
Our current plan is for the transition work to begin immediately, but for Cathy
to come on board starting March 1.
While the timing and the exact location are to be determined, we will be moving the headquarters from San Francisco to Silicon Valley to be closer to some of our funders and many of our core adopters coinciding with Cathy
joining full time.
We reviewed and discussed the strategic plan and the board was supportive of the new structure and the objectives and metrics driven format.
There was a discussion about the importance of developing the science and education sections of the vision and strategy more.
We discussed the importance of involving the stakeholders and community in the conversation as well and looked to other successful models such as Wikimedia.
The board approved the budget which linked to the strategic plan and its objectives with the understanding that Cathy
and I will be working on fund raising over the next few months and that certain costs such as the move and the global meeting were still only estimates.
I'm pleased to announce that today the Creative Commons board of directors has elected Cathy Casserly as a new member.
has been a foremost champion of the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement for a decade and of Creative Commons
since its inception.
She served as Director of Open Educational Resources Initiative at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
A year ago she joined The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as Senior Partner.
has become a great personal friend and invaluable mentor as I ramp up my involvement in CC's
open education strategy.
It is a great honor for me to welcome Cathy
to the Creative Commons board of directors.
