Training Course Syllabus:


The free flow of information, open public discussion and the avoidance of conflicts of interest in the decision-making process are keys to our democratic society. The challenge for everyone, especially our public officials, is to balance the public's right to information with an individual's right to privacy and to engage in debate and the decision-making process free of any potential personal or private financial considerations.

If you are involved with the operation of a city, town, county, school district, special district, redevelopment agency or other public agency, or are simply interested in public affairs, you need to know the ins and outs of public records, open meeting laws, and conflict of interest rules. The goal of this seminar is to inform you of the laws and provide you relevant and practical information that will help you to better perform your duties or use these laws more effectively to monitor the business of government.
