Number of FDC members

The FDC will be a diverse body of people reflecting different aspects of the movement, including its geographic, linguistic, and cultural diversity. In addition to nine voting members, two additional non-voting seats will be reserved for WMF Board of Trustee members, who will serve as liaisons to the Board regarding FDC decisions and the overall evaluation and continual improvement of FDC processes.

  • 時期によりウィキメディア財団職員ならびにFDC 委員とメールやチャットのやりとりを集中して行うこと。

これらの職務を果たすため FDC 委員は任期の間、連絡にすぐに応じ活発に任務にあたることが求められます。特例として一定期間、やむをえず委員会活動を休まなければならない場合、委員は事前に委員長に通知する必要があります。委員長は予告なく活動を休んだ委員に連絡して状況を把握し、またその委員に力を貸して職責を修正します。連絡に応答しない、もしくは慢性的に怠慢な場合、委員長はその権限において理事会に決議を求めるものとし、理事会は当該の委員の解任ならびに任期満了まで務める委員の任命にあたります。委員長が活動を休み連絡が取れない場合、他の委員にはこのことを理事会に明らかにしなければいけません。

New FDC members will be carefully trained and on-boarded to ensure continuity of process and ongoing operations of the group. Existing FDC members and the FDC staff will be responsible for training and on-boarding new members. In the inaugural year, the FDC Advisory Group will help to onboard the first FDC members.

Expenses associated with fulfilling FDC membership (e.g., travel costs) will be reimbursed. Over time, certain benefits that support the role of the FDC member, such as a travel and admission expenses for Wikimania, admission to a professional conference or training sessions, or participation in site visits, may be offered to attract, engage, and assist members.

Criteria for FDC membership

Wikimedia community members who seek to volunteer as FDC members should meet the following criteria, in addition to agreeing to the expectations as outlined above.

To be eligible for the FDC, members:

  • Must be over 21 years old and over the age of majority in their home country;
  • Must be able to work effectively in English (although full fluency is not required);
  • Must present to WMF appropriate personal identification, a copy of which will be maintained by WMF for record-keeping;
  • Have sufficient time and dedication to commit to this process and availability to attend in-person meetings, as needed;
  • Have a track record of constructive engagement in community discussions and an orientation toward collaborative problem solving; and
  • Be able to set aside any conflicts of interest and work towards the mission goals of the Wikimedia movement without considering individual or organizational interests.

Through careful selection of candidates through both the Board-appointment and community election processes, the FDC membership (as a whole) should have the following skills and attributes:

  • Experience directing or evaluating programs;
  • Grant-making expertise (either as a grantee or grantor of funds);
  • Exposure to, understanding of, and personal credibility in the Wikimedia movement (that is, experience in programs, chapters, or administrative roles within the Wikimedia movement); and
  • Gender, geographic and linguistic diversity.

Conflict of interest provision

Staff / board members of entities requesting funds through the FDC may serve on the FDC; however, they must recuse themselves from deliberations pertaining to their entity's proposal. In addition, FDC members may not accept compensation or payment in any form (including travel and lodging expenses) from persons or entities that have or will likely have activities before the FDC, including proposals for grants (an exception to this includes reimbursements and benefits provided by the Wikimedia Foundation to FDC members). The conflict of interest provision is not intended to prevent compensation to FDC members when that compensation is for work - such as staff duties - for an affiliate organization (like a chapter) and that compensation is unrelated to the member's FDC service. Therefore, an FDC member may be employed by a chapter or other affiliate organization and receive a salary, provided that this salary is not tied to the member’s duties, responsibilities, or actions on the FDC. Of course, in this situation (as stated above), the FDC member must comply with all the requirements of the Pledge of Personal Commitment and the Conflict of Interest Policy, including disclosing the relationship and abstaining from any voting or discussions relating to that particular affiliate organization.

Selection process for FDC members

The term of FDC membership will be two years, with a round of either elections or appointments every year (election years will coincide with elections for the community-elected seats on the Board of Trustees, to streamline processes and communications). There will be no term limits, so FDC members may serve multiple consecutive terms so long as they are re-elected or re-appointed. As shown above, up to four or five seats (including community-elected and Board-appointed) may turn over each year.

Interested candidates will self-nominate for either a community-elected or Board-appointed seat. The Board, the FDC and other members of the community can encourage individuals to self-nominate if they identify someone who would be a particular asset. In either case, the Board will vet all nominations and present a slate of eligible candidates.

  • For community-elected candidates, this slate will then go to the community for election.
  • For Board-appointed candidates, the Board will work with the FDC to identify the most qualified members who would best complement the make-up of the existing FDC members.

Off-cycle attrition would be addressed through Board-appointed replacements. The Board of Trustees has the right to remove any FDC member if it determines that member has not fulfilled their responsibilities as FDC members.

Roles and responsibilities of FDC Ombudsperson

The FDC Ombudsperson plays an important role in the funds dissemination process:

  • To receive and publicly document complaints about the FDC process;
  • To support complaints investigations (only when formally requested to do so by the Board representatives on the FDC);
  • To publish an annual report to the Board that documents and summarizes complaints, and identifies any systemic problems in the FDC process that warrant Board review of FDC policies, procedures or structures, and to be responsive to Board member questions about the content of the report.

Expectations for FDC Ombudsperson

Acting as FDC Ombudsperson will require dedicated time and energy. Nominees for FDC Ombudsperson should expect to undertake the following:

  • Receiving and consolidating feedback about the FDC throughout the year, via Meta or email (may be more intense during application periods)
  • Participating in an annual report-writing process to summarize the feedback from the community
  • Participating, as needed, in complaints investigation between the time of FDC recommendations and Board decisions (November 15 - December 15 and April 15 - May 15 each year)

Criteria for FDC Ombudsperson

Wikimedia community members who seek to volunteer as the FDC Ombudsperson should meet the following criteria, in addition to agreeing to the expectations as outlined above.

To be eligible for the Ombudsperson role, an individual:

  • Must be over 21 years old and over the age of majority in their home country;

  • Must have been active in the Wikimedia community for at least 2 years;
  • Should have sufficient time and dedication to commit to this process;
  • Have a track record of constructive engagement in community discussions and an orientation toward collaborative problem solving; and
  • Be able to set aside any conflicts of interest and work towards the mission goals of the Wikimedia movement without considering individual or organizational interests.

Staff / board members of entities requesting funds through the FDC may serve as the FDC Ombudsperson.

Selection process for the FDC Ombudsperson

The term of the FDC Ombudsperson will be two years, with election years coinciding with FDC elections and elections for the community-elected seats on the Board of Trustees, to streamline processes and communications. There will be no term limits, so Ombudspeople may serve multiple consecutive terms so long as they are re-elected by the community.

Interested candidates will self-nominate for the Ombudsperson position. The Board, the FDC and other members of the community can encourage individuals to self-nominate if they identify someone who would be a particular asset.

Off-cycle attrition would be addressed through Board-appointed replacements.

The Board of Trustees has the right to remove any Ombudsperson if it determines that the Ombudsperson has not fulfilled her / his responsibilities.
