EVENT DETAILS
The Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas, working in cooperation with the Texas Attorney General's Office and the University of North Texas, will host an Open Government Seminar on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016, on the UNT campus in Denton. The training sessions on the Texas Public Information Act, Cost Rules and the Texas Open Meetings Act will take place in the University Union, Room 382.

The morning training session on the Public Information Act and Cost Rules is free and runs from 9:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. An afternoon training session on the Texas Open Meetings Act will take place from 1:15 to 2:45; the cost for this session is $50.

These sessions qualify for state credit in open government training, which is required for some public officials and public employees. They also qualify for Continuing Legal Education for attorneys.

For those who wish to have lunch on campus between sessions, there are several food options available in the UNT student union, where the seminar will be held. Lunch is on your own.
