July 13 WCOG Workshop
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Saturday, July 13, 2013
Western Washington University
The Washington Coalition for Open Government (WCOG) invites the public to attend a free workshop from 10:00AM to 1:00PM on Saturday, July 13 at Room 224 in the Communications Facility at Western Washington University on East College Way in Bellingham.
Experts on open government issues will lead the attendees through a process that will enable them to effectively exercise their rights under Washington’s open government laws. The purpose of the workshop is to help people understand their right to know what their state and local governments are doing. Attorney Judith Endejan of the Seattle law firm Graham and Dunn and WWU journalism professor Peggy Watt will explain Washington’s open public meetings and public records laws. The workshop will feature general guidance rather than specific legal advice. Reference materials will be supplied.
The Communications Facility is on the south end of campus. Parking is free on weekends in the "C" lots, which are at South College Drive and West College Way (the lots are clearly marked).
Funding for this workshop is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through a grant from the National Freedom of Information Coalition.
