Register now to join us virtually on Thursday, September 10, 2020, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. ET at the first meeting of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee’s 2020-2022 term. The meeting is open to the public; however, you must register to receive information for accessing the meeting online.
Following their introductions, Committee members will hear reports from the co-chairs of the Chief FOIA Officers Council Technology Committee and returning Committee members before discussing topics for the Committee to consider in the next two years.
This will be the fourth term of the FOIA Advisory Committee which reports to the Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero, who recently appointed members to the 2020-2022 term. The Archivist established the Committee in May 2014 to foster dialog between Federal agencies and the requester community, solicit public comments, and develop recommendations for improving the administration of FOIA across the government.
Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) Director Alina M. Semo chairs the Committee and our staff administratively supports its work. Stay tuned to the Committee’s work and activities by visiting the Committee’s webpage, following us on Twitter, and following our blog, the FOIA Ombudsman, to receive an email every time we write a new post.
