DHS wants your ideas! (NARA Identifier 534244)

Don’t forget to register to join us for the Second Annual OGIS Open Meeting on Friday, May 18th from 10 a.m. to noon. This is your opportunity to learn more about our activities, hear from members of the FOIA Advisory Committee, and share your views!

After welcoming remarks from Deputy Archivist of the United States Debra Wall, OGIS Director Semo will cover some of the highlights from our FY 2017 Annual Report, including the trends we have observed through our compliance program. After Director Semo’s presentation, she will be joined on the stage by members of the 2016-2018 Term of the FOIA Advisory Committee to discuss the Committee’s work and the broad range of recommendations and best practices included in the Committee’s Final Report (please note that you have until June 1, 2018 to submit a nomination to be part of the Committee’s 2018-2020 Term). After the panel discussion, there will also be an opportunity for the public to submit statements.

Can’t join us on Friday? You can submit your written statements to ogis@nara.gov. You can also watch the livestream of the event on the National Archives’ YouTube Channel, and use the chat function on the livestream to share your thoughts; we will have a member of the OGIS staff monitor the chat and share any substantive comments during the public comment period.
