Annual Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law & Sunshine Act Training (Thu, November 7, 2019, 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM)

The Office of Open Records (OOR) is conducting its annual Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) and Sunshine Act training. You can register to attend in person or participate via webinar by visiting

This year’s session will include:

* A review and discussion of the latest court decisions involving the RTKL, including an overview of what’s on the legal horizon regarding upcoming cases on the courts’ dockets and significant issues for attorneys.

* An updated overview of the OOR’s proposed RTKL regulations and the regulatory process.

* An discussion of the upcoming OOR Docketing System, which will be rolled out in the coming months, and provide a hands-on tutorial.  The new Docketing System is designed to make the RTKL appeal process smoother for all parties.

* A review with up-to-date information on Pennsylvania’s Sunshine Act, which governs access to public meetings.

Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions.

The OOR's Annual Training is free and open to everyone. (While everyone is welcome to attend, those most likely to benefit include elected and appointed public officials, Agency Open Records Officers, and attorneys who regularly deal with the RTKL and/or the Sunshine Act. The OOR will schedule separate sessions to focus on issues more of interest to requesters.)

The training can be attended in person or online via webinar.

This program is approved for 2 substantive CLE credits.
