Selecting a representative of {{SITENAME}}

Your voice is needed[edit]

You are a contributor to {{SITENAME}}, which is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF). The Wikimedia Foundation hosts over 900 wikis. The Wikimedia Movement consists of the WMF, the communities of the 900 project wikis, and over 140 affiliate organizations (chapters, thematic organizations and user groups).

In the future there will be a Global Council representing the communities. The Global Council will negotiate a service level contract for hosting the wikis with a service provider.

The roles and resposibilities of the Global Council are to be written in a Constitution for the Wikimedia Movement, also known as Movement Charter. An Interim Global Council will be tasked (among other things) with drafting a Movement Charter.

The Movement needs the voice of {{SITENAME}} on the Global Council. We need a representative from your wiki to invest time and energy in collaborating with representatives from all other wikis. For selecting a representative we follow local policies and procedures of {{SITENAME}} for selecting functionaries and/or decision making.
