LC Chair Report
The Kantara Initiative is the global consortium improving trustworthy use of identity and personal data through innovation, standardization and good practice.
Corporate members needed - membership dues offset operational costs and allow the Groups to operate with a 'No-Fee' participation structure.
Kantara is highly visibile at the events our members attend - leads to good ideas for new work and coverage areas
Very strong interest in Consent management and Consent receipt
Board of Directors will start planning for 2018 fiscal/calendar year in October - Groups that have publications or work projects on their roadmaps should inform the board (via LC) about plans and support requirements.
New WG starting soon to develop "Consent Management Solutions - Best Current Practices" publication, hopefully leading to assessment criteria and certification/trust mark. Will complement the Consent Receipt Specification work.
Administrative Reminders/Requests: Please ensure your WG and DG charters are reasonably current. These are supposed to be reviewed annually.

New publication type
Andrew proposes to define a new type of Kantara publication: the 'Best Current Practice' Recommendation. This would follow the same intent as with IETF BCP documents.
Currently the publication type: 'Recommendation' has sub-types of 'Recommendation' and 'Technical Specification'. The 'Best Current Practice' would become a third sub-type.
"The BCP subseries of the RFC series is designed to be a way to standardize practices and the results of community deliberations. A BCP document is subject to the same basic set of procedures as standards track documents and thus is a vehicle by which the IETF community can define and ratify the community's best current thinking on a statement of principle or on what is believed to be the best way to perform some operations or IETF process function."
