Do you find yourself locked in disputes with FOIA requesters (or agency colleagues)? Would you like to learn constructive ways to resolve or avoid disputes in the future?
OGIS will present a training session designed to help FOIA professionals develop dispute resolution skills on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at the Archives building on Constitution Ave between 7th and 9th streets NW in Washington, D.C. This free, all-day session is appropriate for anyone in your agency who works with FOIA, including FOIA Public Liaisons, program managers, FOIA processors, FOIA attorneys and others. 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.

To whom it may concern,
Do you offer this training session via Webex, for those of us who cannot travel?

Thanks for your interest in our training! Unfortunately, we cannot offer the session up to remote participation.
I would like to know if dates for training sessions for FY 2016 has been added? Thank you.
Thanks for your interest in our dispute resolution training sessions. Earlier this month we announced a general schedule for next year’s training session (http://foia.blogs.archives.gov/2015/10/02/ogis-release-new-years-calendar/). I will add your address to the list we use to announce our training dates. Please also keep an eye on this blog and follow us on Twitter at @FOIA_Ombuds for further updates.
