Timeline of the 2022 Board of Trustees election

The affiliate organizations will vote in this election in July to shortlist six candidates from the candidate pool. Each affiliate organization will be allowed one vote. This vote will be using the Single Transferable Vote method. Affiliate organizations should discuss the candidates the affiliate organization would like to select. Candidates should be ranked in order of preference.

The Affiliate Representatives were able to ask questions for the candidates to answer. Candidates will publish answers starting on June 24.

To assist with this selection process, an Analysis Committee will be formed.

Analysis Committee[edit]

For regional distribution of the Affiliates and facilitators who will be supporting it, see Affiliates regional distribution for the Analysis Committee

The Analysis Committee is formed from the affiliates during late April and May. The Analysis Committee is composed of 9 representatives of affiliates (including all chapters, user groups, and thematic groups) from regions across the movement. One each from:

  • CEE (Central & Eastern Europe);
  • ESEAP (East and Southeast Asia, and the Pacific region);
  • Sub-saharan Africa;
  • Latin America and the Caribbean;
  • MENA (Middle East and North Africa);
  • North America (USA and Canada);
  • Northern and Western Europe;
  • South Asia;
  • plus one for thematic affiliates.

The selection process to form the Analysis Committee will be defined by the affiliates, with support of the Elections Committee and the Movement Strategy and Governance team as needed.

The Analysis Committee evaluates the candidates against the skills and diversity, equity and inclusion criteria shared by the Board of Trustees. The Analysis Committee will use the statements the candidates answer on their application to rate the candidates. The Analysis Committee will rate candidates with a gold/silver/bronze framework. This rating will be used to provide input to the affiliate organizations when they plan their vote. The details of the evaluation of each candidate will not be shared.

After the six candidates have been selected during the affiliate organization voting process, the ratings of each selected candidate will be published to inform the community vote. This process aims to find the best balance between sharing useful information and minimizing unnecessary exposure of candidates.
