Subject: Help needed - job spec for Chapter Board members

Hi all,

We're currently organising the first AGM for Wikimedia UK and we're looking at 
ways of encouraging people to stand as candidates for the chapter Board.

One bit of feedback that I've had is that people would be more likely to stand 
if they had a better idea of what the role required.

Could I ask what the experience of other chapters is on this: what kind of work 
do you normally expect from your Board members? How often do you have meetings, 
in person and remotely, how long do they last and how much work would an 
ordinary Board member or an officer (e.g. Secretary, Chair, Treasurer) 
typically do?

Thanks for your feedback on this.
