Ohio Sunshine Laws Training
Date: Monday, May 12, 2014
Time: 1:00 - 4:15 PM
Location: Building H, Room H101
Description: Mandated H.B. 9 Training

The foundation of Ohioís Sunshine Law is the principle that citizens are much more likely to have both trust and confidence in governmental institutions that are open to public scrutiny. House Bill 9, passed by the 126th Ohio General Assembly, strengthens these important laws and gives the Office of the Ohio Attorney General primary responsibility for ensuring that public officials across the state understand them.
Among other provisions, HB 9 mandates that during each term served in elected office, all elected officials* or their appropriate designees obtain three hours of public records training via a curriculum approved by the Ohio Attorney General.† This mandate applies whether the official was appointed or elected to that office.
*Judges and clerks of court are exempt from this requirement.

Records Management and Retention
Optional Training
Following the Sunshine Law session, an additional hour of (optional) training will be available from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. on records management and document retention for those who are interested.
