FOIFT and AG to stage April 30 Open Government seminar in Houston

The Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas is partnering with the Texas Attorney General’s office to offer a day-long Open Government training seminar in Houston on April 30.

The workshop is designed for government employees, journalists and members of the general public who want to learn more about the Texas Public Information Act and Texas Open Meetings Act.

“This training on Texas open government laws provides important information for public employees and essential tools for citizens as they participate in our democracy,” said Kelley Shannon, executive director of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas.

The event will take place at South Texas College of Law in the Garrett-Townes Auditorium, 1303 San Jacinto St. in Houston.

The Attorney General’s Office will begin the day with training on the Texas Public Information Act at 9 a.m. followed by TPIA cost rules training.

Those sessions are free.

FOIFT will present an afternoon training session on the Texas Open Meetings Act by attorney Joe Larsen, a FOIFT board member and attorney with TAB Associate Member law firm Sedgwick LLP, starting at 1:15 p.m.

The afternoon session fee is $50 to help cover materials and other seminar costs.

To register, visit the FOIFT website and go to the “Activities and Programs” tab and then “Open Government Seminars.”

Further information is also available by calling the FOIFT office at 512-377-1575.
