Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees 2022 election - updates
The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees met between March 23-24 for our first in-person meeting in over two years. It was an opportunity to welcome our new CEO and several new trustees who have recently joined the Board. Further updates from the meeting will be shared soon, I am writing now to report on resolutions that the Board made regarding the upcoming 2022 elections:
- We resolved to adopt recommendations related to the elections process. These recommendations have been developed as a result of feedback from the community Call for Feedback that happened in January and further discussions by a Board Selection Task Force. They will be implemented on a trial basis for the 2022 election.
- In service of maintaining continuity and stability in our leadership, we resolved to make some modifications to our plans to expand the Board.
You can read about the details of these resolutions on Meta. We are happy to discuss and answer any questions on the corresponding talk pages.
