It’s wintery outside, but we at OGIS are busy planning Sunshine Week 2017 at the National Archives! Mark the afternoon of Monday, March 13, 2017 on your calendars and plan to join us in the William G. McGowan Theater for a celebration of sunshine and open government.
2016’s Sunshine Week at the National Archives event attracted nearly 400 attendees, including government employees, representatives of civil society organizations, journalists, and interested members of the public. We hope 2017 will be even bigger. Sunshine Week 2017 at the National Archives is free and open to the public, both in person and via a live web stream; for those who miss out, we also post video after the event (check out the video of our 2016 event here).
Sunshine Week 2017 at the National Archives will include an update on OGIS’s activities and reports over the past year from OGIS’s new Director, Alina M. Semo. There will also be opportunities to share your thoughts about our activities and how to improve the FOIA process.
