Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Volunteer for CIS's A2K programme director recruitment committee
To: Wikimedia India Community list <>

Dear Wikimedians,

I would like to request members of the Indian Wikipedia community to
nominate themselves to serve on the CIS's A2K Programme Director
recruitment committee. This programme will hopefully receive large
grant from Wikimedia Foundation and we would greatly benefit from
community input during the hiring process of the new Programme

The volunteer must be experienced Wikipedian, based in India [ as we
cannot afford international travel for the interviews] and must have
sufficient managerial experience [including experience with conducting
interviews].  The volunteer should be able to spare time in September
to review applications remotely and also conduct face-to-face
interviews for 2 days either in Bangalore or Delhi.

Those who fit the description are requested to nominate yourself by
sending me an email with a profile and relevant URLs before COB 25th
August 2012.

I will publish a long list on on 29th August, after
removing those nominations that don't have the required
qualifications. The volunteer to serve on the recruitment committee
will be selected from the long list by using IETF's Publicly
Verifiable Nominations Committee (NomCom) Random Selection[1].

The other members of this recruitment committee will consist of
1. One of the existing independent consultants [Hisham, Nitika,
Noopur, Shiju or Subha]
2. One member from the Wikipedia Chapter (Wikimedia India Program
Trust) community. To be nominated by the Chapter Executive Committee.
3. Executive Director of CIS - me.

The recruitment committee will be responsible for screening the long
list of eligible applications and conducting one-on-one face-to-face
interviews with the short list of applicants.

Best wishes,


[1] The random seeds will be the
30 August 2012 result for the following national lotteries - Australia
