Speaking to the County Commissioners Association

Yesterday in Hershey, I spoke to members of the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania at their Newly Elected Officials Workshop & Fall Conference.

Not surprisingly, I focused on Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law. More specifically, I encouraged counties (the same would apply to other agencies) to post their most commonly requested records online. For example:

We also discussed effective ways to use social media and how the RTKL applies to social media, as well as some common-sense ways to reduce the burden of the RTKL on agency employees.

Many thanks to CCAP for the invitation. I appreciate the chance to speak to county commissioners from across Pennsylvania.

Here’s the PowerPoint presentation I used:
