Those who are considering a candidacy are urged to read the Wikimedia Foundation Board Handbook prior to submitting their candidacy.

Roles and responsibilities as member of the Board[edit]

The Board of Trustees is responsible for oversight of the Wikimedia Foundation's operations. Good board members enable good management by the Executive Director and staff. They do not manage the organization themselves or interfere in its day-to-day operations. The Board's oversight role includes decision-making, monitoring and leadership.

These responsibility include:

  • Making decisions on vision, strategy, goals, and high level policies for the organization;
  • Monitoring the Wikimedia Foundation's performance, risks, finances, and compliance;
  • Advising the Executive Director and senior staff, drawing on the Board member's relevant expertise and experiences; and
  • Articulating and communicating the Wikimedia Foundation's goals to the Wikimedia community and general public.

Board members should maintain the legal and ethical integrity of the organization, recruit and orient new Board members, and cultivate diversity on the Board.

Learn more about the role of the Board of Trustees in the Wikimedia Foundation Board Handbook.

ለእጩ ተወዳዳሪነት ቅድመ-ሁኔታዎች[edit]

To be eligible, candidates must be willing and able to fulfill the duties of board and committee service, including expending the time and energy required to conduct due inquiry into relevant issues, to make informed decisions in good faith, and to attend board meetings regularly. The eligibility requirements for candidates are the same as for voters (see voter requirements), with the following additional requirements:

  • 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
  • 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[edit]

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

  1. Write a brief summary of no more than 1200 characters (excluding spaces) stating how you hope to enrich the entire Board, and describe your related opinions and experience, and anything else you think is relevant. An additional summary of no more than 400 characters (excluding spaces) will be displayed on the voting page. You may not use your candidate summaries to link to lists of endorsements or other platform pages, and may not run on a slate with other candidates.
  2. Submit your summaries between 00:00, April 20, 2015 (UTC) and 23:59, May 5 2015 (UTC). Your statement may only be changed in the 3 days after submission, or up to May 5, 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 will be sent for professional translation within 48 hours of submission. While the first translation will be on a 24 hour turn around future updates will be grouped together and may take longer.
  3. Submit proof of your identity to the Wikimedia Foundation before 23:59, May 5 (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.
