This morning, the Office of Open Records hosted a webinar designed for new Agency Open Records Officers (AOROs).
Topics covered include agency obligations under the Right-to-Know Law, what to do when a request is received, fees and payments, and the OOR’s appeal process.
Here’s the PowerPoint presentation that our Chief of Training & Outreach, George Spiess, used for this session:

The OOR regularly provides training on Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law and Sunshine Act. Our training calendar is available here, and we always welcome requests to provide training.
This is Sunshine Week 2019, and we’re hosting a series of webinars. I hope you can join us for some or all of them!
The Office of Open Records has produced four videos, all available at our new YouTube channel.
These videos describe some of the basics of Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law.
