Chers amis de Wiki,

Le comité d'affiliation, le comité qui est en charge de guider les contributeurs volontaires pour établir les Chapitres (Chapters), des Groupes d'Utilisateurs et des Organisations Thématiques, et approuver ces contributions lorsqu'elles sont prêtes, est à la recherche de nouveaux membres.

Le principal objectif du comité d'affiliation (AffCom) est de guider des groupes de bénévoles pour former des affiliés. Nous nous assurons que les groupes sont suffisamment nombreux pour être viables (et leur donnons des conseils pour devenir plus nombreux si nécessaire), nous revoyons leurs statuts pour vérifier leur cohérence avec nos normes et avec les meilleures pratiques; nous conseillons également le conseil d'administration de la fondation Wikimedia sur les sujets ayant trait aux Chapters, Organisations Thématiques et Groupes d'Utilisateurs.

Cela demande de communiquer avec des bénévoles du monde entier, des capacités de négociation et de comprendre des cultures différentes, et la capacité de comprendre des textes juridiques. Nous essayons d'avoir une grande diversité de compétences parmi nos membres.

Key skills/experience that we are looking for in candidate members, are typically:

  • Excitement by the challenge of helping to empower groups of volunteers worldwide
  • Willingness to process applications through a set, perhaps bureaucratic process
  • Readiness to participate in (movement roles) political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliations, and similar questions
  • 5 hours per week availability,[1] and the time to participate in a monthly ~2-hour phone meeting
  • International orientation
  • Very good communication skills in English
  • Ability to work and communicate with other cultures, languages and cultures
  • Strong understanding of the structure and work of affiliates and the WMF
  • Knowledge of different legal systems, experience in community building and organising is a plus
  • Communication skills in other languages are a major plus
  • Experience with or in an active affiliate is a major plus

In 2012 new types of affiliation affiliations were introduced and the role of the Committee has increased in guiding through volunteers towards affiliation models that empower them to further our mission, and making sure these models meet the needs of the volunteers and the movement. We are looking for new people to help, who are not afraid of the workload and are motivated by helping other volunteers come together forming communities that further our mission around the world.

Members are usually selected every 12 months for staggered two-year terms. The applications will be voted on by the current members not seeking re-election, taking into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisers, WMF staff and board liaisons, based on the above membership criteria. A final decision will be made by the end of the year, with new members expected to join on or around 1 January 2014.

If you are interested, You can send your applications with your full name, contact data (e-mail address, wiki username), relevant experience and motivation letter to our vice-chair Carlos Colina at jewbask(_AT_)wikimedia.org.ve by 5 December 2013. You will get a confirmation that your application came through.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. We are happy to chat or have a phone call with anyone about our work, if this helps them decide to apply.

Please distribute this call among your networks, and do apply if you are interested.

Best regards, Bence Damokos Chair, Affiliations Committee
