POSTPONED: FOI Foundation’s Open Government Seminar in San Antonio to be rescheduled

The FOI Foundation’s Open Government Seminar in San Antonio, previously scheduled for April 8, has been postponed amid coronavirus concerns and stay-at-home orders.

Please stay tuned for the reschedule date, tentatively planned for June.

The Open Government Seminar is part of a series of regional educational sessions the non-profit Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas is hosting this year in cooperation with the Texas Attorney General’s Office. 

It is open to all who are interested, including community activists, journalists, attorneys, government employees and the general public.

“Fully participating in our democracy means having access to information. This seminar will inform citizens and public officials about using our Texas open government laws,” said Kelley Shannon, executive director of the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas.

The training sessions on the Texas Public Information Act and Texas Open Meetings Act are approved by the Attorney General’s Office as meeting the state requirements for open government training for public officials. The training sessions are also approved for State Bar of Texas CLE credit for attorneys.
