The 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee manages the details of the election organization within the capacity delegated to them by the Board of Trustees, subject to Board overview, and may give recommendations to the Board about the elections.
Please note: Per request of the Board of Trustees the committee was reactivated on December 28th 2015 to discuss a vacancy on the Board. Given the intervening time some adjustments were made to the committee and are noted below in italics next to the individual names.

Committee members must be editors of one or more Wikimedia projects, cannot be on the Board of Trustees or candidates in the election, and cannot vote in the election.
