Are you interested in improving the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) process?
NARA created the FOIA Advisory Committee in 2014 to support the Administration's efforts to modernize the administration of FOIA in the Second United States Open Government National Action Plan. The Committee brings together agency FOIA professionals and requesters to collaborate on recommendations to improve the FOIA process and proactive disclosures. In order to build on improvements to the FOIA process since 2009, the White House has charged the Committee during its second term to look broadly at the challenges that agency FOIA programs will face in light of an ever-increasing volume of electronic records, and chart a course for how FOIA should operate in the future.
Join the FOIA Advisory Committee as they kick off the 2016-2018 term in the William G. McGowan Theater on July 21, 2016 at 10 am (RSVP here to attend in person: Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee Meeting: July 21, 2016 Registration, Thu, Jul 21, 2016 at 10:00 AM … ) A live stream of the meeting will be available here: FOIA Advisory Committee Meeting - YouTube.
