Dear fellow Wikimedians,

Help your Organized Group be an influential part of our movement strategy!
We are on the search for representatives from the organized part of our
movement who can act as liaisons between their group and the Movement
Strategy Process.[1]

The core goal of the Movement Strategy Process is to develop and implement
recommendations for a structural reform of the Wikimedia Movement to
advance in the Strategic Direction. Central to doing this effectively will
be establishing a continuous dialogue with Individual Contributors as well
as Organized Groups to ensure they remain up to date about the ongoing
conversations and are enabled to provide input from their perspective.

With this email, we invite you to sign up as a Strategy Liaison for your
Affiliate, group, collaboration or committee. As the interface between the
overall process and organizations, Strategy Liaisons for Organized Groups
will assist the flow of information so that Organized Groups can take part
in global conversations and surface what matters most in their context.

Strategy Liaisons for Organized Groups will:


   Act as the bridge between Organized Groups and the overall Movement
   Strategy Process;

   Proactively update their organization about the ongoing work and how it
   can participate in it effectively;

   Coordinate and facilitate discussions within the organization and highlight
   the most important organizational feedback points to the Working Groups.

We’d like Strategy Liaisons to commit to the role from March to December,
2019. In some weeks, such as during the community conversations in
March-April as well as August-September, Liaisons will ideally be able to
commit approximately 5-8 hours per week to monitor global conversations and
facilitate organizational discussions. Outside of the active periods, you
would ideally be able to commit 1-2 hours per week to stay up to date and
engage with important questions or issues related to your organization.

If this has sparked your interest, you can


   find more information on the application page on Meta



   sign up to become a Strategy Liaison by March 15

   or respond to Kaarel, Kelsi and me directly.

In the coming weeks, we will also work with 9 Community Language Liaisons
and call for volunteer Liaisons for Community Conversations to engage with
the individual contributor communities.

We are looking forward to hearing from you,
Nicole and the Core Team
