The results were announced on 17 June 2011.
2011-es kuratóriumi választás

A 2011-es kuratóriumi választások május 29. és június 12. között zajlanak. A Wikimédia-közösség tagjai három tagot választhatnak egy kétéves periódusra, mely 2013-ban jár le.

The Board of Trustees is the ultimate governing authority of the Wikimedia Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered in the United States. The Wikimedia Foundation manages many diverse projects such as Wikipedia and Commons.

The elections are held securely on servers belonging to Software in the Public Interest. Votes are secret, and no one from the Election Committee, the Board, or anyone not affiliated with Software in the Public Interest has access to them. Voter information is visible to the select few persons who audit and tally the election (the election committee). Voters submit ranked preferences by numbering candidates. The votes will be tallied using the Schulze method to rank candidates based on the number of voters who prefer that candidate over other candidates.

A választási bizottság legkésőbb június 15-én fogja kihirdetni az eredményt. A részletes eredmények is hozzáférhetőek lesznek.

Roles and responsibilities as member of the Board

From the board manual

The Board of Trustees is the governing authority of the Wikimedia Foundation. Responsibilities of the Board include:

  • determining mission, goals, long-term plans and high level policies of WMF and its projects
  • selecting the Executive Director of the WMF, who oversees its day-to-day operations, and evaluating his or her performance
  • ensuring the sustainability of the organization by defining a number of independent revenue sources
  • communicating about the direction and the activities of the WMF to the community
  • providing oversight to staff with regard to accounting, budgeting, and programs
  • maintaining legal and ethical integrity
  • recruiting and orient new trustees
  • articulating the mission of the WMF in public

The responsibilities of the Board do not include:

  • interfering in day-to-day operations, except in emergencies
  • setting Wikimedia project-level editorial policies
  • resolving basic community disputes
  • volunteering in specific areas of regular WMF organizational work

Characteristics of effective trustees:

  • Strategic – e.g., to provide long term direction
  • Thoughtful – e.g., to avoid being reactionary to controversial issues
  • High integrity – e.g., to put the interests of the foundation as a whole over personal or specific constituent interests
  • Responsiveness – e.g., to email requests from other trustees
  • Follow through – e.g., to complete tasks such as committee assignments as committed.
  • Respectful – e.g., to listen carefully to other trustees' points-of-view even as they may differ from one's own
  • Collaborative – e.g., to partner with other trustees and the Executive Director on the Board's work

Prerequisites to candidacy


The eligibility requirements for candidates are the same as for voters (see above), with the following additional requirements:

  • you must publicly disclose your real name in your candidate presentation (because the identities of Board members are a matter of public record, it is not possible to hold a position on the Board of Trustees anonymously or under a pseudonym); and
  • be at least 18 years old and of legal age in your home country; and
  • submit proof of your identity to the Wikimedia Foundation (see below).

How to submit your candidacy


If you are eligible, you can submit your candidacy by doing the following:

  1. Write a brief summary of no more than 1200 characters stating what you would do if you were elected to the Board of Trustees, your relevant opinions and experience, and anything else you think is relevant. You may not use your candidate summary to link to lists of endorsements or other platform pages, and may not run on a slate with other candidates.
  2. Submit your summary between 00:00, May 2nd 2011 (UTC) and 23:59, May 22nd 2011 (UTC). After May 22nd, it cannot be changed except for minor corrections (for instance, spelling correction) or translation. Any additions or changes to content submitted after this deadline will be time-stamped and presented separately from the original summary, and will only be presented to voters if they get translated into all of the same languages as the original summary. You should note that earlier submissions allow time for translation into more languages, and that submissions provided on the due date or just before may not be as widely translated.
  3. Submit proof of your identity to the Wikimedia Foundation before May 22nd. You will be privately contacted by a member of the Election Committee with further information about meeting this requirement when you list yourself as a candidate.

Candidates who fail to comply with the above requirements and deadlines will be disqualified.
