Upcoming Training Opportunity for FOIA Professionals

Class is in session for FOIA professionals interested in learning about dispute resolution.

Are you a FOIA professional who is interested in learning more about how to resolve disputes that may arise in the FOIA process? If so, please join OGIS for Dispute Resolution Training for FOIA Professionals on Wednesday, May 1. This free all-day session (9:00 a.m. – 4 p.m.) will be held at the main Archives building.

The amended Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. § 552) directs FOIA Public Liaisons to help resolve FOIA disputes. We offer a free dispute resolution skills training program for all FOIA professionals to help them fulfill this mandate. We present this training program in collaboration with the Department of Justice’s Office of Information Policy.

Participants will develop a working knowledge of Alternative Dispute Resolution techniques, learn how working with OGIS can help resolve disputes, practice active listening and good communication, and develop strategies for working with difficult people. This training is appropriate for anyone involved in the FOIA process, from program managers to FOIA attorneys to FOIA Public Liaisons.

If you are interested in joining us for this free training opportunity or if you would like more information, please email OGIS at: ogis@nara.gov.
