Join Federal Agencies in Celebrating Sunshine Week 2017

While our neighbors up north have been busy digging out from recent snowfalls, we have been busy thinking about the sunshine! Specifically, we have been putting together some exciting plans for Sunshine Week 2017.

As we have announced previously, we are hosting Sunshine Week 2017 at the National Archives during the afternoon of Monday, March 13. Be sure to watch this page for coming updates about our agenda and to find out how to join he audience!

Our friends at the Department of Commerce asked us to share their flyer announcing two events they are holding to mark the occasion. We hope you will plan to join them for their Sunshine Week Kickoff Event in the Research Library on Tuesday, March 14. Commerce will also be hosting speaker sessions on Wednesday, March 15 and Thursday, March 16 at the U.S. Census Bureau.

We also want to make sure that you have blocked off the morning of Monday, March 13 to join our colleagues at the Office of Information Policy (OIP) at the Department of Justice (DOJ) for their Sunshine Week Kick Off Celebration. During the event, DOJ will honor FOIA professionals from across the government who have made extraordinary contributions to the field. To register to attending this event, e-mail your name and phone number to OIP’s Training Officer at, with the subject “Department of Justice Sunshine Week 2017 Event.”
