We hope you are planning to join us for our first annual Open Meeting on Thursday, April 20th in the William G. McGowan Theater! If you cannot attend in person, you can still watch all of the action via the livestream on YouTube.

As we noted in our blog post announcing the meeting a few weeks ago, the meeting is intended to provide the public with an update on the office’s activities, and give interested persons an opportunity to present oral or written statements. You can also submit written statements to ogis@nara.gov.

As we outlined in our Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Annual Report, the passage of the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016 had a profound impact on OGIS. We are excited to hear your thoughts about or expanded role and visibility in the FOIA process, and how we can better carry out our dispute resolution and compliance functions.

The Open Meeting is scheduled to run from 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., with a majority of the time reserved for public comments. There is no need to sign up to submit comments, but you do need to RSVP to attend the meeting.

If you are interested, we hope you will also stick around to watch the FOIA Advisory Committee meeting beginning at 10 a.m. During the meeting, Committee members will provide updates on the ongoing work of the Committee’s three subcommittees: Search; Efficiencies and Resources; and Proactive Disclosure.
