The 2019 affiliate-selected Board seats process has begun. The plan is to have two new trustees confirmed by Wikimania 2019, 14 August 2019 at the latest.

ProcessEdit

The process is governed by the relevant resolutions adopted by the affiliates.

The election facilitators for 2019 are so far:

These facilitators have volunteered for these roles. No objections were raised. There is room for volunteers in an advisory role to Election Facilitators. We want to encourage participation in this process that embraces diversity and inclusion. As such, we especially welcome women and non-binary people and representation from the Global South.
