The Coalition for Open Government presents

Open Government: Your Right to Know

On a regular basis, there are news stories regarding government officials not responding to Freedom of Information Law requests, violations of the Open Meetings Law, etc. It is important for concerned citizens and government employees to understand the legal requirements for obtaining information and conducting proper meetings. We all can learn from Bob Freeman, an expert in open government issues. The best part of this forum will be the opportunity to ask questions and hear his responses.

Guest speaker
Robert J. Freeman, executive director of the New York Committee on Open Government, a division of the New York Department of State
