Mark your calendars and reserve your seat for the next meeting of the FOIA Advisory Committee on Tuesday, January 27 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meeting will be in the Archivist’s Reception Room (Room 105) at the National Archives Building, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, in Washington, D.C. Space is limited and our list fills up quickly so reserve your place on the list soon!
The FOIA Advisory Committee brings together agency personnel and outside stakeholders who have considerable expertise in the law and the FOIA process to talk about how to improve the system. The Committee has three subcommittees that are looking at specific areas of concern: making more government information available outside the FOIA process; examining the fee system; and investigating current oversight and accountability systems.
This meeting provides an opportunity for the public to hear updates from the subcommittees and to provide input for the Committee to consider. You do not have to attend the meeting in person to share your views with the Committee. You can submit questions and comments to the Committee at: https://ogis.archives.gov/foia-advisory-committee/contact-us-submit-comments.htm
While we can’t live stream this meeting, we will record it and make it available on YouTube as soon as possible. You can find recordings of past meetings, plus meeting agendas and documents referenced during the meeting here.
