WMF bylaws amendments and upcoming call for feedback[rediger kilde]
The Board has discussed and approved some governance improvements in two recent meetings, on December 9 and January 8. As the governing body for the Wikimedia Foundation, the board wants to improve its capacity, performance, and representation of the movement’s diversity. It has amended the Bylaws in support of that goal.
Please check the details in the announcement published on Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions concerning this, please feel free to ask, I'll be here to answer. Thank you very much and all the best, DBarthel (WMF) (diskusjon) 22. jan. 2021 kl. 13:58 (CET)

As reported before the WMF starts a Call for Feedback about community-and-affiliated seat selection processes, resulting from the recent approval of bylaws amendments. This call for feedback is going to start on Monday Feb 1 and will run until March 14.
Full information will be published on Monday at this page. You can already watch the page for changes (it's very basic currently) or wait for my extensive post on Monday. If you are a user of Telegram, you can receive updates in this Telegram group or join the discussion in this Telegram group. Furthermore we are organizing an office hour three times (for different time zones) on Tuesday, Feb 2 (see the basic page). There we will introduce the call for feedback and will be available for any questions and comments. We are welcoming the organization of conversations in any language and in any channel. If you want us to organize a conversation or a meeting for your wiki project or your affiliate, please contact us. Best regards, DBarthel (WMF) (diskusjon) 27. jan. 2021 kl. 18:34 (CET)
