Bob Freeman talks on FOIL and OML

On May 16th, Bob Freeman will give an overview of the Open Meetings Law (OML) and Freedom of Information Laws (FOIL): Everything You Wanted to Know About the Open Meetings and Freedom of Information Laws… But Were Afraid to Ask. Robert Freeman, Executive Director of the NYS Committee on Open Government provides an overview of OML and FOIL with emphasis on issues pertaining to boards of trustees. Bob is as entertaining as he is educational, and encourages audience questions. Bob has been with the Committee on Open Government since its creation in 1974. He has addressed numerous government, public interest and professional organizations, as well as students of law, journalism, public administration and information science and policy. All Town Board, Village Board, School Board, Church Board members, Trustees, etc. are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to hear this expert. This seminar is free, but please register with Peg Mauer so we have enough handouts. We’ll meet at 5:00 in the Community Room.
