The IETF Trust would like community input on a proposed Conflict of
Interest Policy.

The trustees of a legal trust entity, such as the IETF Trust, should
be subject to a conflict of interest policy.  Accordingly, the
Trustees are considering this policy for adoption.

The policy discusses the following:
  1.  Application of Policy
  2.  Conflict of Interest
  3.  Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest
  4.  Procedures for Review of Potential Conflicts
  5.  Violations of Conflict of Interest Policy

The proposed Conflicts of Interest Policy is located here:

The Trustees will consider all comments received by 13 April 2016.
