Hi Everyone,

2013 is an election year for the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia 

As you may recall the board has three directly elected representatives 
on it which serve for two years. Currently those are Mindspillage, SJ 
and Wing. As in the past years we rely on an effective election 
committee to coordinate the elections for us. They not only guarantee 
that the election is overseen by an independent body, but they also make 
sure that the tremendous amount of work that needs to be done is taken 
care of. My job is to coordinate the formation of this committee.

This is a call for volunteers to serve on the election committee. If you 
feel that you can contribute to this committee, please contact me and 
give a small summary of why you think you would be able to help out with 
this process. Just to make sure we all understand: you cannot be part of 
the election committee if you are planning to be a candidate or are 
planning to support any candidate publicly. Deadline for any extra 
volunteers is January 31st 12:00 UTC.

The timeline for the next steps in the process will be published 
somewhere in February by the election committee. So if you are 
interested in becoming a candidate, time to start preparing!
