Previous selections[edit]

Note that board terms were two-years long until 2015, and are three-years long as of 2016.

History and process[edit]

This practice started with the Board restructuring of 2008, where the Board established the "chapter-selected Board seats." The Wikimedia chapters selected two members in 2008, 2010, and 2012.

Starting with 2014, consistent with the proposed change to the WMF bylaws, this process has been modified to include thematic organizations in addition to chapters. Despite the name "affiliate-selected Board seats," user groups are not eligible to participate. Following July 2015's resolution, since 2016 the term of trustees seats is 3 years.

The affiliate-selected Board seats process is governed by a resolution of the chapters and thematic organizations, adopted on March 1, 2014.
