Open Records 101

  • March 12, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Please RSVP via the WHYY signup here. (This event is $5 for non-members of WHYY. )

The second week of March is Sunshine Week, "a nationwide discussion about the importance of access to public information and what it means for you and your community."

In Philadelphia, WHYY is hosting an event with the editorial director of the Sunlight Foundation - and once Inquirer Reporter - Bill Allison. The event will include a discussion with WHYY reporters Dave Davies and Holly Otterbein, who will share stories from the trenches. The panel discussion will be led by WHYY's Vice President for News and Civic Dialogue, Chris Satullo.

Data and open gov are hot topics in journalism technology right now, so this is a great time to learn more about the open records and information laws already on the books.

Please RSVP via the WHYY signup here.

    Hi. We're thrilled to have you at the event tomorrow. Just a note that while there is time to register for the event - and this is highly encouraged - we will also be happy to have people walk in the door tomorrow.

    I'm executive director of the Pa. Freedom of Information Coalition. Helping people use the open records law (RTK) is what we do. Glad to take part in a more active way, if room on a panel. Check us out at

      Hi Kim, If you'd like to be a part of the Q and A we'd love to have you speak with expertise from PA. There's not a panel. Basically the structure is a basic presentation, lighting journalist case studies and then a longer discussion about what records in the room are interested and where to get them.

      OOPS. The above comment was accidentally made under Sally's sign on... She sent me the Meetup invite, and I just clicked on it and replied, not realizing I was "her". Sorry about that!
