I hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend and are enjoying the lovely
weather (at least, it's lovely here in Scotland!)
I wanted to make sure that you have the date of Wikimedia UK’s next AGM in
your diaries, taking place online on Saturday 1st July from 10am to 12
noon. Please book your place via Eventbrite
The AGM will include reports from me, the Chair and the Treasurer, and is
an important opportunity to ask questions about the charity’s work. The AGM
is also when our annual trustee elections take place. This year we have one
vacancy for an elected trustee, and are keen to hear from members of the
Wikimedia community in the UK who would be interested in joining the Board.
The process for standing for election is detailed here
<https://wikimedia.org.uk/wiki/Board/Becoming_a_trustee> and the deadline
is Friday 16th June. Please feel free to reach out to me if you’re thinking
of standing, particularly if you have questions about the process or the
role of the Wikimedia UK board.
Remember that to stand for the election, or indeed to vote at the AGM, you
need to be a current member. All members should have received an email
about the AGM on Friday so if you didn’t receive one and think you should
have done, please email katie.crampton(a)wikimedia.org.uk. You can apply for
or renew your membership here <https://wikimedia.org.uk/wiki/Membership>.
It only takes a few minutes and costs £5 a year.
Members can also propose resolutions for consideration at the AGM. A
resolution could be about a change to Wikimedia UK’s governing document
(our Articles of Association
<https://wikimedia.org.uk/wiki/Articles_of_Association>) or a change to our
policies. If you want to propose a resolution please email us at
info(a)wikimedia.org.uk by this Friday 2nd June. You can either propose the
suggested text of the resolution yourself, or we can work with you to draft
If you have any general questions about the AGM, please contact Chuks
Ogbonna, copied in.
