উইকিমিডিয়া ফাউণ্ডেশন মুভমেন্ট স্ত্র্যাটেজির ওপর আলোচনা ক্রয়ার একটা প্রস্তাব
জানিয়েছিল। (দখুন সংযোজন ১) ভারতের কিছু স্থানে এইটি হচ্ছে বা হবে আশা রাখি।
কলকাতায় একটি আলোচনা স্ট্র্যাটেজি হ'লে ভালো। কিন্তু সমস্যা ছিল এই যে আবেদন
করার শেষ দিন পেড়িয়ে গেছিল। এ'ক্ষেত্রে আমরা রবি এবং জনের সাথে কথা বলেছি, এবং
প্রাথমিক ভাবে পজিটিভ রিপ্লাই পেয়েছি (দেখুন সংযোজন ২)। যদি এই কার্যক্রম
সংগঠির হয়, সেক্ষেত্রে, একটি পরিকল্পনার প্রয়োজন।

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding
volunteers in establishing Wikimedia chapters, thematic organizations, and
user groups – is looking for new members!
The main role of the Affiliations Committee is to guide groups of
volunteers that are interested in forming Wikimedia affiliates. We review
applications from new groups, answer questions and provide advice about the
different Wikimedia affiliation models and processes, review affiliate
bylaws for compliance with requirements and best practices, and advise the
Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees on issues connected to chapters,
thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups.
The committee consists of twelve members, six of whom are selected every
twelve months for staggered two-year terms. Those joining during the
mid-year process will serve an extended term ending in December 2019.
Being a part of the Affiliations Committee requires communication with
volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity,
and the ability to understand legal texts. We look for a healthy mix of
different skill sets in our members, including the following key skills and

monthly two-hour voice/video meeting.

- Fluency in English.

- Strong track record of effective collaboration (such as evidenced skills
at facilitation, mediation, negotiation, and so forth) are a major plus.
- Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including
contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.
We are looking for people who are excited by the challenge of empowering
volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission
around the world. In exchange, committee members selected will gain the
experience of supporting their world-wide colleagues to develop their
communities as well as personal development in guiding organizational
development, facilitating affiliate partnerships, and professional
As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral
engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2017 member selection process
will include a public review and comment period. All applications received
by the committee will be posted on Meta at

At the end of the public comment period, the applications will be voted on
by the members of the committee who are not seeking re-election, taking
into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisors,
Wikimedia Foundation staff and board liaisons, and the community. A final
decision will be made by mid-July 2017, with new members expected to join
later that month.
*How to apply*

application on the nomination page and send an email announcing your
application to affcom(a)lists.wikimedia.org by 30 June 2017. Your application
must include the following information:
