Justice Department FOIA Course to Be Held in Albuquerque

The Office of Information and Privacy, in conjunction with the Department of Justice's National Advocacy Center (NAC), is pleased to announce an addition to the Department's Freedom of Information Act/Privacy Act training opportunities for Fiscal Year 2005, one that should be of particular interest to FOIA personnel who work well beyond the East Coast of the United States.

By special arrangement this year, and for the first time in more than six years, the Department's basic FOIA-training program will be conducted outside of Washington, D.C. and the NAC's Columbia, South Carolina location. The "Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act for Attorneys and Access Professionals," a three-day training program covering both access statutes, will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on November 16-18.

This FOIA-training program is open to any federal government employee, free of charge on a first-come/first-served basis, but travel expenses remain the responsibility of the attendee's agency. Further information about this program, including a detailed description and registration information, can be found through the following link: FOIA Post, "FOIA Training Opportunities, Fiscal Year 2005" (posted 8/27/04; supplemented 9/20/04). Approximately 75-100 agency personnel are expected to attend, space permitting.

Anyone needing additional information about this FOIA-training program may contact Bertina Adams Cleveland, OIP's Training Coordinator, at (202) 514-1010.  (posted 9/20/04)
