Earlier this week we published the agenda for the upcoming July 19 meeting of the Chief FOIA Officers Council.
The Chief FOIA Officers Council — co-chaired by OGIS and the Department of Justice Office of Information Policy (OIP) — was created by Congress to develop recommendations to increase agency compliance and efficiency and to share agency best practices and innovative approaches. During the July 19 meeting you will have an opportunity to hear from several Chief FOIA Officers or their designees about their strategies for overcoming challenges and what they view as new opportunities for improvement in their respective FOIA programs. There will also be a discussion between the Directors of OIP and OGIS about the Final Report and Recommendations of the 2016-2018 FOIA Advisory Committee, and time set aside for public comments following the panel and discussion.
The meeting is set to begin at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 19 in the William G. McGowan Theater, and is open to the public. If you want to attend in person, please register using EventBrite. If you cannot attend in person, feel free to bookmark the livestream URL.
