The IETF Administration LLC has recently completed three consultations, which have resulted in the following actions:

1.  Consultation on a proposed IETF LLC Community Engagement Policy [1]
Following an extensive community discussion the proposed policy was significantly amended to remove the sections that many felt were unnecessary or needed rewording. The amended policy has been approved by the LLC Board and published [2].  One important aspect of the final policy is that we will be introducing a new mailing list, after IETF 109, for LLC administrative discussions.  A separate announcement will be made when that is ready.

2.  Consultation on a proposed update to the IETF LLC Endowment Policy [3]
One comment was received around the process and none about the substance.  This policy has been approved by the LLC Board and published [4].

3.  Consultation on changes to the IETF meeting venue identification and selection process [5]
No comments were received.  The changes to this process have now been implemented [6].  There will be a follow-up consultation later on the specific questions we ask when conducting our initial assessment.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
