AffCom Movement Contribution

AffCom participates in Wikimedia movement conversations that relate to the affiliate system or where the Committee's experience and expertise would be otherwise beneficial, including answering questions about the affiliate system, providing advice relevant to affiliates or potential affiliates, and sharing knowledge and lessons related to operating as a committee with other movement bodies.

In the past quarter, AffCom members or the committee as a whole participated in these conversations:

AffCom Administration

Between 17 October and 17 November 2023, an open nomination period to the Affiliations Committee was open. The number of members AffCom needs to recruit was not set, as there was the intentional delay in selecting new members last year (announced in December 2022, as AffCom was “a key input for the Board in developing the Wikimedia Foundation Affiliates Strategy”) but it has created a need to stagger selection as all AffCom members term come to end at the same time: 31 December 2023.

At the start of the nomination period, two AffCom advisors were converted to join the committee full-time, for a term ending 31 December 2024:

  • Maor Malul (Maor X): former AffCom member between 2013 and 2019, during which time he served first as chair and then as co-chair; and
  • Aleksey Chalabyan (Xelgen): who has already been providing considerable value as an advisor since his appointment in 2022.

In addition, these incumbent AffCom members are continuing their term:

  • Başak Tosun (Basak), for a term continuing until 30 June 2024; and
  • Joy N. Y Agyepong (Joy Agyepong), for a term continuing until 30 June 2024;

Following the nomination period, the following individuals are appointed to the AffCom:

  • Jeffrey Keefer (FULBERT), for a renewed term running from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2027;
  • Mehman Ibragimov (|Mehman), for a renewed term running from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2027;
  • Suyash Dwivedi (Suyash.dwivedi), for a renewed term running from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2027;

  • Mari Avetisyan (Մարի Ավետիսյան), for a new term running from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2027;
  • Harriet Henry Bayel (Mwintirew), for a new term running from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2027; and
  • Maciej Artur Nadzikiewicz (Nadzik), for a new term running from 1 March 2024 to 28 February 2027.
