Wikimedia Foundation Board Governance Committee/2017 Election Disclosure

Dariusz spoke with the Board Governance Committee to proactively explain that he may consider applying as a candidate in the upcoming community-selection process for the Board of Trustees in 2017. He will be recused from discussions with the Election Committee where appropriate, to ensure the Election Committee can fulfill its purpose and responsibilities independently.

Nataliia will be the primary liaison the Election Committee for the purpose of the operation of the 2017 election, including working on dates, rules, and procedures. Dariusz may continue to work with the Election Committee and Governance Committee on other topics, including questions about Board's composition, as well as selection and election processes generally.
