Presentation to CCAP Solicitors’ Conference

Earlier today, I took part in a discussion about the Right-to-Know Law at the 2018 CCAP Solicitors’ Conference in Harrisburg.

Other participants included attorneys Craig J. Staudenmaier and J. Stephen Feinour from Nauman Smith. The panel was moderated by J. Chadwick Schnee, Berks County’s First Assistant Solicitor.

It was a great discussion, and I very much appreciate the invitation.

The discussion covered a fairly wide variety of topics, but the presentation I prepared focused on the Office of Open Records’ survey of Agency Open Records Officers (AOROs) and the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee’s separate survey of AOROs:

Presentation to PASBO

Open records_logo stackedOn October 20, I took part in a webinar hosted by the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO). We discussed a number of issues related to the Right-to-Know Law and the Office of Open Records.

I was joined on the webinar by Clarence C. Kegel, Esq., of the law firm Kegel Kelin Almy & Lord LLP. (Clarence did the vast bulk of the work in preparing the PowerPoint presentation we used to guide the discussion.)

It was a great discussion, and I very much appreciate the invitation.

Here’s the presentation we used:

Presentation to Public Utility Commission CLE

Open records_logo stackedLast Thursday, I took part in a panel discussion at a CLE organized by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. We discussed a number of issues related to the Right-to-Know Law and the Office of Open Records.

Among the issues covered were the OOR’s Final Determinations in two cases (both captioned David Hommrich and Sunrise Energy LLC v. Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission), 2016-2010 and 2017-0079. The PUC has appealed both cases to Commonwealth Court.

It was a great discussion, and I very much appreciate the invitation.
