How to nominate someone else
If you think that the candidate is eligible, you can ask the election committee to reach out to them, provide information about the position and invite them to apply or ask questions. If you want to do this, you should write an email to email@example.com with:
- The username of the user you want to nominate.
- What position(s) you think they would be a good fit for.
- Are you ok with your name or username being provided as the nominator?
- A short description of why you think they would be a good fit for the position and what they could offer the movement.
What will happen next
After receiving a nomination, the elections committee or their WMF advisors will reach out to the nominee to provide information about the position and it's requirements and to see if they are interested in running. If they are interested, they will be provided with instructions on how to submit their candidacy and, as always, will be able to ask questions about the process or the position.
Information for candidates
Roles and responsibilities of FDC members
- From the FDC portal
FDC members will be expected to dedicate considerable time, focus, and effort, including:
- In-person attendance at FDC meetings (two meetings expected per year, plus orientation at Wikimania);
- Reading and evaluating proposals during the two proposal rounds per year (April/May and October/November);
- Ongoing monitoring and participation in FDC discussions and activities within the community; and
- Sporadically intense email and IRC communication with FDC staff and other FDC members.
Criteria for FDC membership
To be eligible for the FDC, candidates:
- Be at least 18 years old and of legal age in your home country;
- Must be able to work effectively in English (although full fluency is not required);
- Must present to WMF appropriate personal identification, a copy of which will be maintained by WMF for record-keeping;
- Have sufficient time and dedication to commit to this process and availability to attend in-person meetings;
- Be available to attend deliberations in San Francisco Nov 15-21, 2015 (May 2016 dates not yet set);
- Have a track record of constructive engagement in community discussions and an orientation toward collaborative problem solving; and
- Be able to set aside any conflicts of interest and work towards the mission goals of the Wikimedia movement without considering individual or organizational interests.
Board members of entities requesting funds from the FDC may serve on the FDC; however, they must recuse themselves from deliberations pertaining to their entity's application.
Through careful selection of candidates through both the Board-appointment and community election processes, the FDC membership (as a whole) should have the following skills and attributes:
- Experience directing or evaluating programs;
- Grant-making expertise (either as a grantee or grantor of funds);
- Exposure to, understanding of, and personal credibility in the Wikimedia movement (that is, experience in programs, chapters, or administrative roles within the Wikimedia movement); and
- Gender, geographic and linguistic diversity.
FDC members will be expected to adhere to articulated conflict of interest provisions that will reduce their risk of being unduly influenced.

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.
