Maybe hiding vital information from the community is consistent with the
best practices in the industry[1
and what they call "Transparency" is just another way say that is not
profitable for the WMF to hold Wikimania in remote, non-commercial centers.
Or maybe they are just too used to stay in 5 star hotels while the
community stays in dorms and just don't care anymore.

The communications failure and lack of any public
throwing away the community driven bidding process, was a very good
moment to appoint a new Chair of the Wikimania Committee. The
suggestion at the time was ignored. How can the community force
real changes, if the Committee is in apparent PR lock-down? From my
understanding of the history of this committee, it is long overdue to
appoint a Chair who is not reliant on keeping the WMF executive happy
for their salary.
I did wonder how long how much time would elapse from Arnnon Geshuri's
departure before you demanded someone else resigned from something.
Perhaps for "transparency" you could publish a list of all the occasions
you have demanded people in the Wikimedia movement resign from things? By
my count we are already on 4 in 2016 alone, which is quite good going for
period of 6 weeks :)
