2019 Open Government Summit: Sponsored by the RI Attorney General's Office

Friday, July 19, 2019

The Open Government Summit is an opportunity to discuss the important requirements of the Access to Public Records Act and the Open Meetings Act. We will provide practical guidance for complying with these statutes in various scenarios and circumstances. While every situation is unique, there are important transparency principles that must guide every public body’s conduct under these laws. We will discuss recent findings issued by the Office of the Attorney General in response to open government complaints. All attendees will receive copies of the Open Meetings and Access to Public Records Acts and summaries of recent Attorney General findings/ opinions. This event is free of charge and open to the public.
