The National Archives will host—and live stream—its second Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee meeting on Tuesday, October 21, 2014. The Committee will discuss the FOIA issues on which it has agreed to focus: FOIA oversight and accountability, proactive disclosures, and FOIA fees.

Due to space limitations and access procedures, advance registration is required. Spaces to attend the meeting are still available. Learn more here on the OGIS blog.

Can’t make it in person? We’ll live stream the meeting on the National Archives’ YouTube channel. Launched in June 2009, the YouTube channel highlights popular archived films from the National Archives holdings, informs the public about NARA events, and brings NARA exhibits to the people. The URL for the FOIA Advisory Committee meeting is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL_X4-VHr9A.

      We apologize for the inconvenience the audio problem with the live stream of the October 21, 2014 FOIA Advisory Committee meeting may have caused those of you who watched the meeting live on YouTube. This was our first time live streaming from the Archivist’s Reception Room at the National Archives Building and unfortunately we experienced unforeseen technical difficulties which we resolved during the course of the meeting. I’ve followed up with our Audio Visual Team and Special Events Staff to try and ensure that we don’t encounter similar problems in the future. We’ll get transcripts and corrected video of the meeting with captions online as soon as possible. If you want to learn more about the Committee, please visit the Committee’s web page at https://ogis.archives.gov/foia-advisory-committee.htm. Pat, thank you for your patience and feedback! We appreciate it!
