Are you a reporter having trouble getting records from your local government, school board or the United Way? Are you a private citizen or local nonprofit trying to get records on water quality or hurricane recovery, trying to look up a zoning issue or seeking to track crime in your neighborhood? North Carolina law says such information is presumed to be public, but it’s not always easy to get.
Now is your chance to get a basic education on government transparency, ask a lawyer questions about whatever is on your mind and meet others interested in open government, public records and access to public meetings. Register online today!
NCPA General Counsel Amanda Martin will lead the free workshop and discussion. Members of the media and public are invited to attend this interactive two-hour session at WHQR. A social hour with food and drinks provided by Milner's will follow the workshop. Thanks to WHQR for this great partnership!
