This year’s Office of Open Records (OOR) Annual Training session will take place on Thursday, Nov. 1, in Harrisburg.
The training, which will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., will cover Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) and Sunshine Act, including:
- An overview of important OOR resources available on the OOR website for both agencies and requesters to help with your RTKL practice.
- A review of ethical issues in both the RTKL and the Sunshine Act. This session will discuss the ethical components of both laws and provide practice tips to ensure compliance.
- An examination of relevant RTKL case law and notable OOR decisions from the past year. This session will also look at upcoming legal trends as well as proposed OOR regulations and the possible effect both could have on your RTKL practice.
The OOR’s Annual Training is free and open to everyone. (While everyone is welcome to attend, those most likely to benefit include elected and appointed public officials, Agency Open Records Officers, and attorneys who regularly deal with the RTKL and/or the Sunshine Act. The OOR will schedule separate sessions to focus on issues more of interest to requesters, such as this session on Oct. 11, 2018.)
The Annual Training can be attended in person or online via webinar.
This program is pending approval for CLE credit (ethics and regular).
Soon after the event, a video of the training will be available online.
