Elections: 2016-2017 Wikimedia NYC Board Election Ballot[edit]

See also WM NYC Elections page

This September 2016 meetup will be the annual meeting for Wikimedia New York City and include an election of board members. The election is a casual event. The only published rules for it are in the by-laws of the organization. The election in 2015 is documented on the meeting page for that annual meeting, in case anyone wants to see a past example. While some responsibilities and powers are described for board positions in the by-laws, the custom in the chapter's own organization style is that board activities happen by consensus and take input from anyone in the community. There is no great recognition of anyone on the board having particular power, and to date, the management of the organization has been a casual affair that includes significant influence from both chapter members and the general public. Still, having a board which can come to agreement with itself is a useful way to recognize input from all community stakeholders, and anyone who feels like they can contribute is welcome to stand for election regardless of their background or experience. To stand for election please sign below. Attending the upcoming meeting is useful, as this in-person meeting is the only venue in which candidate statements will be heard. Anyone candidate who is not able to attend in person may send a proxy to read their statement on their behalf. Wikimedia NYC has a local base, and the best candidates will be those who will participate in local conversations. Thanks. As the election coordinator, I will be overseeing the election, trying to maintain a neutral process, and trying to keep the event simple and accessible.
