[Wikimedia-l] Affiliations Committee elections announcement June 2020

2020-06-18 Thread Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight
Hi everyone,

This is a friendly reminder that the Affiliations Committee (AffCom) – the
committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing and sustaining
Wikimedia chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups – is seeking
new members! The deadline to post your application on the nomination page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliations_Committee/Candidates/June_2020>
is 30 June 2020.


   -

   Application process: Considering the anticipated changes following the
   Strategy recommendations, we had a limited scope to introduce changes in
   the process. We have made a small but impactful addition to the application
   process by introducing the Self Assessment survey form which will help the
   committee know more about your engagement as endorsements are not
   consistently shared, may not be representative, and often do not speak to
   the specific skills needed.
   -

   Selection process: No change; see:
   https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliations_Committee/Rules_of_Procedure



If you have any questions, please contact me and/or the committee as a
whole. We are happy to answer questions about our work if this helps people
decide to apply. Please distribute this announcement  among your networks.
Good luck to all the candidates!

On behalf of the committee,

Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight (she/her)
