OFFICE OF OPEN RECORDS
Right-to-Know Law and Sunshine Law Annual Training
[48 Pa.B. 6940]
[Saturday, October 27, 2018]
The Office of Open Records (OOR) is conducting its annual training on the Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) (65 P.S. §§ 67.101—67.3104) and 65 Pa.C.S. §§ 701—716 (relating to Sunshine Act). This year's training will consist of three sessions followed by a question and answer period.
The first session will provide an overview of important OOR resources available on the OOR web site for both agencies and requesters to help with the RTKL practice.
The second session will consist of a review on 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.
The third session will examine 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 the RTKL practice.
The OOR's annual training is free and open to everyone to attend in person or online by means of webinar. Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions. (While anyone 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 or the Sunshine Act, or both. The OOR is scheduling separate sessions to focus on issues more of interest to requesters and more information can be found on its web site.)
This program is pending approval for CLE credit.
