Resolutions Resolution: Approving the 2019 affiliate-selected Board seat process Errors?
This resolution was approved on April 11, 2019.


Whereas the Bylaws of the Wikimedia Foundation specify that two trustees are “selected from candidates approved through a process determined by Affiliates collectively”; and

Whereas the Bylaws further specify that the selection process “will be conducted according to a procedure approved by a majority of Affiliates collectively and approved by the Board”; and

Whereas the current terms for these affiliate-selected Board seats will expire in 2019; and

Whereas the Wikimedia affiliates, in collaboration with Election Facilitators, have drafted a procedure for the 2019 affiliate-selected Board seat process, incorporated by reference into this resolution; and

Whereas the Board has reviewed the draft procedure;

Now, therefore, it is:

RESOLVED that the draft procedure for the 2019 affiliate-selected Board seat process is approved by the Board.

Approve
Maria Sefidari (Chair), Christophe Henner (Vice Chair), Dariusz Jemielniak, James Heilman, Nataliia Tymkiv, Raju Narisetti, Esra'a Al Shafei, Jimmy Wales, Tanya Capuano, and Lisa Lewin
