You, your staff, council members, elected or appointed officials, and employees who deal with public records or meetings are cordially invited to attend a seminar in eastern Idaho on Idaho’s key open government laws: The Idaho Open Meeting Law and the Idaho Public Records Law. It’s a chance to learn what is covered – and what is not – by these important laws, in a fun and accessible format. Presenters will include Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, Deputy Attorney General Brian Kane, and IDOG President Betsy Russell. The session is recommended by the Office of the Attorney General, the Association of Idaho Cities, the Idaho Association of Counties, and the Idaho Press Club.
Enjoy the refreshments as you are entertained and educated about Idaho’s public record and open meeting laws; there is no charge. CLE credit is available for those who are attorneys.
