Información para os candidatos

A selección dos novos membros da xunta deben cumprir co deber de coidado do Consello da Fundación Wikimedia. O Consello debe actuar de xeito razoable, dilixente e informado e co coidado que calquera persoa prudente tería en circunstancias similares. Este deber de coidado, por exemplo, aplícase á coidadosa selección dos individuos cualificados para servir no Consello que non causen desprestixio a ese corpo.

Aqueles que estean pensando en presentar a súa candidatura ínstaselles a ler por completo o manual do Consello antes de facelo.

Roles e responsabilidades dos membros do Consello de administración

A Xunta directa é responsable da supervisión das operacións da Fundación Wikimedia. Bos membros do Consello permiten unha boa xestión do/a Director/a Executivo/a e do equipo da Fundación. Eles non xestionan a organización por si mesmos nin interfiren en operacións cotiás. O papel de supervisión do Consello inclúe tomar decisións, control e liderado.

Estas responsabilidades inclúen:

  • Tomar decisións sobre a visión, estratexia, obxectivos e políticas de alto nivel para a organización;
  • Controlando a actuación, riscos, finanzas e conformidade da Fundación;
  • Asesorar ao/á Director/a Executivo/a e funcionarios, aproveitando a experiencia e coñecementos apropiados dos membros do Consello; e
  • Articular e comunicar os obxectivos da Fundación Wikimedia á comunidade e ó público en xeral.

Os membros do consello deben manter a integridade legal e a ética de organización, recrutar e orientar novos membros do Consello, e cultivar unha diversidade no mesmo.

Aprender máis sobre a función da Xunta directiva no Wikimedia Taboleiro de Fundación Handbook.

Requisitos previos para a candidatura

Para ser elixible, os candidatos deben estar dispostos e ser capaces de realizar o traballo da Xunta e do comité de servizos, incluíndo expendendo tempo e enerxía requirida para dirixir asuntos de relevancia, para tomar decisións informais e para atender reunións da Xunta regularmente. Os requerimentos de elixibilidade son os mesmos que para os votantes (véxase voter requirements), cos seguintes requerimentos adicionais:

  • You must not have been convicted of a serious crime or any crime involving dishonesty or deception; and
  • You must not have been removed from a position at a non-profit organization or other company because of mismanagement or misconduct; and
  • At the time of nomination or election, you may not be banned or blocked from any Wikimedia project for a period of 30 days or longer; and
  • If you only meet the voter eligibility requirements as an editor: Your first edit must have been before 1 April 2015; and
  • You must publicly disclose your real name in your candidate presentation (because the identities of Board members are a matter of public record, it is not possible to hold a position on the Board of Trustees anonymously or under a pseudonym); and
  • Be at least 18 years old and of legal age in your home country; and
  • Submit proof of your identity to the Wikimedia Foundation (see below).

How to submit your candidacy

If you are eligible, you can submit your candidacy by doing the following:

  1. Write a brief statement of no more than 250 characters (not including spaces) describing yourself and your reasons for running. This statement will be displayed directly on the voting ballot to all voters and will receive priority for translation. You may not use your candidate statements to link to lists of endorsements or other platform pages, and may not run on a slate with other candidates.
  2. Write up two brief summaries of no more than 200 words describing your work on the Wikimedia Projects and your offline Wikimedia work.
  3. Submit your summaries between 00:00 April 7 2017 (UTC) and 23:59 April 20 2017 (UTC). Your statement may only be changed in the 3 days after submission, or up to the close of the nomination period at 23:59 April 20 2017 (UTC), except for minor corrections (for instance, spelling correction) or translation. Any additions or changes to content submitted after this deadline will be time-stamped and presented separately from the original summary, and will only be presented to voters if they get translated into all of the same languages as the original summary. You should note that earlier submissions allow time for translation into more languages, and that submissions provided on the due date or just before may not be as widely translated.
    Please note: To allow voters to engage with candidates quickly statements may be sent for translation within 48 hours of submission. Future changes may not be as fully translated.
  4. Submit proof of your identity to the Wikimedia Foundation before 23:59 April 20 2017 (UTC). You will be privately contacted by a member of the Election Committee with further information about meeting this requirement when you list yourself as a candidate.

Candidates who fail to comply with the above requirements and deadlines will be disqualified.

Candidate Questions

The community is invited to ask questions of the candidates throughout the nomination period on the question page. At the end of the nomination period the Election Committee will collate those questions to collect similarly themed questions together and you will be invited to answer those questions directly on the wiki page. You are encouraged to answer those questions as early as possible to allow for translation so that your answers can be read by non-english speaking voters.

The committee has already decided that the following questions will be asked because they have been historically asked in past elections. You may wish to think about your answers now so that you can have an answer ready during the answering period.

  • Why do you think you would be a good candidate for a seat on the board
  • Is there any connection between your employment (or other financial interest) and the position on the board? If so, please describe how you can ensure this does not interfere.
  • I think the board should be focusing on: (what do you believe the board should be focusing on)
