Bring Open Government Symposium to your area

Georgia Open Government Symposiums have been held in Macon, Valdosta, Athens, Douglasville and Savannah.

Journalists, community watchdog groups, government officials and staff have attended the free events that focus on the provisions of the Georgia Open Records Act and Open Meetings Act, while framing the discussion with the principles and importance of government transparency.

Presented by the Georgia First Amendment Foundation and the Transparency Project of Georgia, the symposiums are intended to “incubate a culture of openness in local governments across the state of Georgia,” according the Transparency Project director Jim Zachary.
