Dear all, soon we will starting the bidding process for Wikimania 2016.
Soon the Wikimania Committee will be kicking off the selection process for deciding who should host Wikimania 2016. * https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2016 Request for Proposals (RfP) is being published soon and we want to invite volunteers to serve on the selection jury. The jury will evaluate bids and make a recommendation to this committee and the WMF based on published criteria, reviewing the bids from November onwards until the final selection is made in December 2014. This is roughly 30-40 hours' work, and is key to us making Wikimania a strong, healthy community conference that we all can enjoy. The Wikimania Committee will select a jury that is a balanced representation of the community, from a diverse range of backgrounds, sexes, languages, cultures and regions of the world. What we are looking for: * seven members * geographical diversity * experience with events of this kind - either outside or inside the movement, as organiser or long-time Wikimaniac * members are required to read the Wikimania proposals on Meta Wiki * members are required to participate in six conference calls to discuss with each Wikimania proposal team and with the jury, approximate duration two hours, during the review phase (approx. one to two weeks around December) If you would like to serve on the jury, please e-mail Ellie Young (off-list) eyoung @ wikimedia.org August 24. We will announce the jury in two weeks' time. On behalf of the Wikimania Committee with regards, Manuel -- Manuel Schneider - Chief Information Officer Wikimedia CH - Verein zur Förderung Freien Wissens Lausanne, +41 (21) 340 66 22 - www.wikimedia.ch _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
