A result has been decided in the process to choose a "selector" for the
North American region to help determine six members of the Movement Charter
Drafting Committee (MCDC). LiAnna Davis was named by the majority of North
American affiliates and will join eight other regional selectors to help
choose the full 15 member MCDC. Thank you to all who participated in the
meetings and deliberations on a very rushed timetable. Thanks should go out
to a team of WikiConference North America volunteers who helped facilitate
this process at the request of the Movement Strategy team.
It should be noted that feedback was given to the WMF showing great concern
about the lack of time to properly determine a result that included all
stakeholders and about the inherent ambiguity of the process, given "North
America" as a region of representation is a new and novel construct. In
short, we tried to make the best out of a highly suboptimal arrangement and
asked the Wikimedia Foundation to improve its practices so we are not put
in the same situation again.
