Time/effort commitment

Trustees serve for three-year, renewable terms. Each year, the Board convenes two to three times in person at different locations around the world and three to six times online, as necessary. Meetings require coordination with members across the world and across time zones. Overall, the time commitment for standard service is easily 75 hours per year (not including travel). Trustees serve on one or more Board committees, supporting and providing counsel to the CEO and her team, or promoting the Wikimedia movement through speaking engagements and connecting with the Wikimedia communities, in coordination with Foundation staff.

All Board positions are unpaid and provided in service of the movement, though Board related travel is funded by the Foundation.

Once you are on the Board, you need to have the ability and agility to fully embrace a role where your primary responsibility is to ensure the health and sustainability—and good governance—of the Wikimedia Foundation. Being a Wikimedia Foundation Board member is not a job for the faint of heart. It is for a leader willing to invest significant time and energy in being an effective steward of the world's singular and vital knowledge commons on the internet.

We welcome any new prospective candidates reaching out to us, individually, to better understand the expectations, the responsibilities, the workload and what it might take to be an effective Board member.
