Virtual session on basics of public records is Dec. 5

Join Colleen Ference-Burke, UWM public records custodian; Jennifer Herzog, university legal counsel; and Derek Webb, records officer, for a presentation on the basics of fulfilling legal and policy requirements for open government as they apply to records and meetings. The session will be via Teams on Tuesday, Dec. 5, from 10-11 a.m.

The speakers will address questions such as:

  • What qualifies as a record?
  • When and how do you have to post public announcements of your meeting?
  • What happens when a member of the public files a request for your records?
  • How long you have to keep your records?

Join the session on Teams. There will be ample time for Q&A, and the session will be recorded for those who want to view it afterward.
