La Junta directiva de la Fundación Wikimedia gestiona la organización y supervisa la disposición y y solicitación de donaciones sin fines de lucro. La Junta directiva es la autoridad corporativa fundamental de Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (art. IV, secc. 1 de los Estatutos de la Fundación Wikimedia).

The Board has the power to direct the activities of the Foundation. It also has the authority to amend the corporate bylaws (article VI). Full responsibilities and procedures of the Board are laid out in the Board Handbook.

The Board currently has six seats selected in some fashion by the Wikimedia community, plus one seat designated for Jimmy Wales. Together these trustees, with the help of community brainstorming and outside recruiters, choose four other people (not always from within the community) to fill out the expertise needed on the Board. At full membership, the Board thus includes eleven Trustees, although some seats may not be occupied at the moment.

This is primarily a historical page about the past composition of the Board. For current news and discussions, see the Board portal summarizing its recent work and committees, and a noticeboard for posting requests or sharing proposed resolutions with the Board.

Junta actual


Junta original: 2003

Board of Trustees original members

The original founding three members of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees were Jimmy Wales, Tim Shell, and Michael Davis.

The Foundation was created in 2003, with three trustees. It was planned that two members would be added to this list, to represent the community.

Junta n.º 1: de junio de 2004 a junio de 2005

Two of the elected seats were filled via a project-wide vote in June 2004. This election was open to all active users who had made their first edit on any Wikimedia project at least 90 days before they voted.

The initial trustees (article IV, sec. 2.2.) included the following individuals, three Bomis partners, and two (other) Wikipedians:

Junta n.º 2: de julio de 2005 a septiembre de 2006

Board at Wikimania 2006 (August 2006), from left to right, Tim Shell, Florence Nibart-Devouard, Jimmy Wales, Michael Davis, Angela Beesley.

The first Board of Trustees changed the duration of the two elections position from one to two years. The notion of volunteer user representative and contributor user representative were dropped. This election was open to all active users who had made their first edit on any Wikimedia project at least 90 days before they voted. It took place directly on the website. See Elections for the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, 2005 for more information.

The second elections took place in June–July 2005 and resulted in the two members' representatives being re-elected. Positions within the board were changed as followed:

In July 2006, Angela Beesley announced her resignation, effective September 2006. In August 2006, Tim Shell announced his plan to resign in the near future.

Junta n.º 3: de septiembre de 2006 a noviembre de 2006

The third Board had a very short duration, and was characterized by a strong reorganization. Erik Möller was elected as Angela Beesley's replacement and joined the Board on September 26 (resolution). His term was set up to expire on July 18, 2007, as he was simply completing Angela's term. The changed board was as follows:

On 28 October 2006, the board was reorganized. A major change was the replacement of Jimmy Wales by Florence Nibart-Devouard as chair. Positions on the Board were changed as below:

This Board decided on the expansion of its membership, the replacement of Tim Shell, a change of term duration of elected members, and the removal of lifelong term for Jimmy Wales. To limit the risk of a huge trusteeship turnover in June 2007 (where Florence, Erik, and the future two additional trustees term is due), it was decided that Florence would be appointed from June 2007 till June 2008.

Junta n.º 4: de diciembre de 2006 a julio de 2007

The Board was expanded according to the Resolution:Board expansion. Consequently three new members were appointed on 8 December: one to replace Tim Shell, who stepped down effective 15 December 2006, and two as the result of expansion. After this expansion, four trustees were effectively elected, while three are "appointed". Terms of appointment were thenceforth one year, elected, two years. The two appointed trustees, Kat Walsh and Oscar van Dillen, made it numbers 2 and 3 at the September 2006 board elections.

Later that year the Bylaws were amended so that Treasurer and Secretary officerships could be held by staff. Garfield Byrd was chosen as Treasurer, and Geoff Brigham as Secretary.

Agosto de 2013

NB: Now that we are starting to regularly appoint new Trustees around January 1, and have staggered election and selection of Trustees, it may not make sense to define and number Boards from July to July. A continuous list of Trustees, updated as needed with a comment explaining the transition, makes more sense. And this better matches the highly informative chart below.

In April, Ting Chen resigned from the Board in order to apply for the post of WMF executive director. In June, Ana Toni was appointed to the Board starting July 1, filling the seat vacated by Matt Halprin, and the community-nominated Phoebe Ayers and María Sefidari and reelected Samuel Klein to the Board, starting August 7.

Desde agosto, la Junta consiste de:

* Jimmy Wales (talk contribs  email) (Founder's seat)
* Jan-Bart de Vreede (talk contribs  email) Chair
* Phoebe Ayers (talk contribs  email) Vice Chair (community-nominated)
* Stu West (talk contribs  email) (anterior tesorero)
