Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen Announces Video Recordings of This Year's Department of Justice Webinars on the Public Records and Open Meetings Laws Now Accessible Online

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is pleased to announce that video recordings and PowerPoint presentations from this year’s Department of Justice (DOJ) webinars on the Public Records and Open Meetings laws are now available online free of charge.


For those who were unable to attend either of this year’s live seminars or the online webinars, Attorney General Van Hollen announced today that video recordings of the webinars, posted by subject matter, are available online.  Those resources, along with other Public Records and Open Meetings information, are available here.


“I encourage anyone who was unable to attend a live seminar or the live webinars to check out the online recordings,” Van Hollen said.  “The Open Government section of our website has quite a bit of important information about Wisconsin’s Public Records and Open Meetings laws, which represent an important foundation of our participatory democracy.”


Every year, the DOJ holds free Public Records and Open Meetings seminars and webinars to educate Wisconsin residents, officials and media and to promote compliance with state laws.  A webinar is an interactive audio-visual presentation viewed live over the Internet from the participant’s personal computer.
