General FOIA Training for Public Bodies
- This event has passed.
The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is the state law governing access by citizens of Virginia, and representatives of the media, to public records and to meetings of public bodies. FOIA provides that, with some specific exemptions and exceptions, all meetings of public bodies shall be open to the public, and all public records open for public inspection.
VRSA is here to protect our members and their employees so they may effectively serve their communities. Since any public body employee could receive a FOIA request, this virtual engagement will provide a general overview of FOIA and how to handle such a request.
