The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Annual Conference in Austin brings together journalists, public employees, attorneys and interested citizens to delve into FOI issues.
The 2016 conference was held Sept. 8 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the University of Texas campus. Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Lisa Falkenberg of the Houston Chronicle was the keynote speaker.
