Open Meetings Act

This class provides an overview of Maryland’s Open Meetings Act law, which guides public officials in the requirements for providing public notice of the meetings that public bodies hold to conduct public business and for closing meetings when appropriate. The presenters focus on steps that local governments can take to comply with the law’s application to Maryland local government, discuss some of the cases and complaints that have come before the Open Meetings Compliance Board, and, if time permits, address questions from the audience.

Speaker: Frank Johnson, City Attorney, City of Gaithersburg

Date/Time: November 9, 10 am – Noon (virtual)
