FOIA Requester - Agency Town Hall Meeting

OIP will be hosting its first-ever FOIA Requester – Agency Town Hall meeting on March 21, 2011. In keeping with the President’s and Attorney General’s emphasis on increasing transparency and working cooperatively with FOIA requesters, this Town Hall meeting is an opportunity for the FOIA requester community and FOIA personnel throughout the Federal government to meet face-to-face to share their views and discuss issues related to the FOIA. OIP met with FOIA requesters in 2009 and 2010 at Requester Roundtable events, to exchange ideas for increased cooperation, to explore approaches to improve FOIA processing, and to discuss areas where agencies can provide useful information in a more accessible format to the public. Both roundtable meetings were enlightening and productive. The goal of the Town Hall is to expand that productive dialogue to include all interested agency FOIA professionals, as well as members of the requester community. The Town Hall will be facilitated by OIP’s Director and will include a panel composed of both agency FOIA professionals and FOIA requesters. Participation and exchanges with anyone attending the Town Hall will be welcome. The details for the event are: FOIA Requester-Agency Town Hall Meeting March 21, 2011 Department of Justice Great Hall 10th and Constitution Avenue NW 10:00 am – noon This event is open to both agency personnel and members of the public. Registration is required to attend this event. To register, please contact OIP at (202) 514-3642 before March 18, 2011.
