The Federal FOIA Advisory Committee will reconvene on Thursday, July 20th at 10:00 am in the William G. McGowan Theater to continue its work to develop consensus solutions to some of the greatest challenges to FOIA administration and processes. If you have comments to share with the Committee, or would like to join the live audience, please register today.

During the current term, the FOIA Advisory Committee is addressing three important issues– proactive disclosures, searches, and efficiencies and resources. All of these topics reflect the profound changes that technology has made to the way that government operates, and the public’s expectations for openness.  They are all critical components to charting a course for how FOIA should operate in the future.

At the July 20th meeting, the co-chairs of each subcommittee will provide updates on their work. The agenda also includes an update on records management issues, including the management of email records, by the Chief Records Officer, Laurence Brewer. As we have written about before, there is a strong link between effective records management and FOIA programs.

We hope you will join us in person for the meeting. For those of you who cannot make it to the theater, the meeting will also be livestreamed via the National Archives’ YouTube Channel. You can also always email any feedback you want to share with Committee members by emailing foia-advisory-committee@nara.gov.
