Agenda and Minutes Workshops

Posted on Nov 8, 2011 in What's New

The state Office of Information Practices (OIP) will be hosting “Workshop Wednesdays” at the State Office Tower in Honolulu to teach Sunshine Law boards how to properly prepare public meeting agendas and minutes.

The free, one-hour workshops will be offered to boards’ secretaries, executive directors, and attorneys, who will be asked before the workshop to provide a set of their agendas and minutes that will be shared with the other participants. At the workshop, an OIP staff attorney will provide comments and answer questions as to how each board’s agenda or minutes could be improved. Using a board’s own materials may help its key personnel to better understand what the Sunshine Law requires and will provide a practical learning experience.

Workshops will be held on Wednesday, November 30 and December 7, 14, and 21, 2011, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Registration for each workshop will be limited to twelve Sunshine Law boards.
