Workshop Promotes Open Government Relations
The Washington Coalition for Open Government invites the public to attend a free workshop on Saturday, May 11 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM at the Aberdeen Timberland Library.
Experts will lead attendees through a process that will enable them to effectively exercise their rights under Washington’s open government laws. The purpose of the workshop is to help people understand their right to know what their state and local governments are doing. Attorney Katherine George, a WCOG board member, will explain Washington’s open public meetings and public records laws. The workshop will feature general guidance rather than specific legal advice.
Washington Coalition for Open Government is an independent non-partisan non-profit organization founded in 2002, dedicated to strengthening the state’s open government laws and protecting the public’s access to government at all levels.
