Task force objectives

Wikimedia India proposes to interface with Community through the formation of City and Language special interest Subcommittee. The following are the guidelines to identify leaders for them.

  • A chair person of each SIG (City/Langauge) can only represent either a city or a language.
  • Members of SIG: You can belong to any number of Language SIGs to which you contribute, but only belong to one City SIG that is closest to your place of residence in the same geographic entity as yours.
  • Self nomination with recommendation by others or nominations of other members of the same SIG and acceptance by such nominated individuals are allowed.
  • Chairs of such subcommittees will interface with one EC member charged with City/Language SIG
  • All such Chairpersons, if they are not members, are required to apply for membership of the Chapter at the earliest.
  • SIG pages on Members wiki will be used for nominations, Members identification, discussions and finalisation of the Chairpersons.
  • In case no consensus emerges on the chairperson for a particular SIG, chapter EC will decide on the same considering the inputs available.
  • Chairpersons are expected to serve in their roles for one-two years.
