Hi Lukas, I'm glad it interests you, for we do consider that all that is able to strengthen links between community and "official" entities (chapters/affiliates) is important.
You can find a description of the whole process on Meta: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimédia_France/Gouvernance/Siège_communautaire along with the motivations that lead us to this choice. For now it's only in French tough… (as soon as a good will translates it, I will let you know on this list :) Bien cordialement, Nadine Le 02/12/2019 11:39, Lukas Mezger a écrit : > Dear Nadine, > > Thank you for sharing these news - congratulations to all new members of the Wikimédia France board and a big thank you to those whose term has ended! > > I'd be interested learn more about the idea of 'community-elected board members'.
