Grant Advisory Committee/Candidates
Please volunteer to help us make better decisions about grants! The GAC handles between 3 and 12 new grant proposals a month. Some proposals are longer or more complicated than others, and some warrant more discussion than others. It is expected that a GAC volunteer devote at least three or four hours a week to GAC work (see GAC description), assuming there are open requests or reports.
GAC members may have any other role in the movement, including chapter board memberships and other Wikimedia committee memberships, except for membership in the Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC). If an active GAC member is elected or appointed to the FDC, their GAC membership will immediately lapse. An active term on the GAC can have a positive bearing on a subsequent bid to join the FDC.
If you are interested in joining the GAC in the coming selection process – currently scheduled for around March 2014 – please sign below. Please include a brief statement about your background and involvement demonstrating you meet the criteria.
To comment on someone's candidacy, please use the talk page.
Hi! I'm a veteran from the English Wikipedia. Started back in August 2007. Not much involvement with WMF-type things although I did visit the office last summer. I have an economics and finance background and around 10,000 edits in a variety of subject areas. My activity level has waxed and waned a bit based on the demands of the working world after life as a student, but I'm trying to pitch in and get more involved again with Wikipedia and WMF. Currently serving on the board a small environmental nonprofit in the United States along with some other volunteering (and managed to do a little editing of mark-to-market accounting today!) but I would like to squeeze some time in to review grants.
