I just wanted to update you all on the Affiliate-Selected Board Seats
sessions at the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin.
You have probably already seen that there are five nominations for these
There are two sessions planned about this election:
9.45am - 10.30am Sunday: Open Q&A
Each candidate will be asked to make a short speech/presentation.
Candidates will then be asked to respond to questions. You are invited to
place your questions on Meta here;
Alternatively, feel free to email me (or otherwise contact me) with your
question before the session.
Not all candidates will be present in Berlin. Those candidates not present
have the option of speaking to everyone present via a videocall, if they
wish. We are also looking into recording and/or streaming the session so
that people who aren't in Berlin can see what's going on, and I very much
hope this will be possible.
10.30am - 11.30am: Discussion among Movement affiliates
This will be a closed discussion among Board members of movement
I will be chairing both sessions as I happen to be the only one of the
election facilitators in Berlin. I will ensure that, as far as possible,
everyone who wishes to ask a question or to contribute to the discussion
has the chance to do so.
If you have any questions about these sessions, please don't hesitate to
