The Open Meetings Compliance Board will hold its annual meeting at 10:00 a.m. on August 20, 2014 at the Office of the Attorney General, 200 St. Paul Place, Baltimore, Md. Before holding the annual meeting, the Board will meet at 9:15 to discuss organizational matters. The public is invited to both sessions.
The Board receives, reviews, and resolves complaints alleging a violation of Maryland’s Open Meetings Law and issues a written opinion on whether or not a violation has occurred. The Board also evaluates how well public bodies comply with the Open Meetings Law and recommends improvements in the law to the General Assembly. With the Office of the Attorney General and interested organizations or persons, the Board additionally develops and conducts educational programs on the requirements of the Open Meetings Law for the staffs and attorneys of public bodies, the Maryland Association of Counties, and the Maryland Municipal League (Code State Government Article, secs. 10-501 through 10-512).
