Regional Right-to-Know Workshop - The Right-to-Know Law and Governmental Records (Dover)

WHEN:  1:30 pm - 4:00 pm, Friday, May 3, 2019

WHERE:  City of Dover Police Department (Police Training Room), 46 Chestnut Street, Dover, NH  03820

COST:  Workshop fee is $35.00 without publication and $55.00 with NHMA publication, A Guide to Open Government:  New Hampshire's Right-to-Know Law.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:   

Join NHMA's Executive Director Margaret Byrnes and Municipal Services Counsel Natch Greyes and who will share strategies to assist municipalities in handling governmental record matters arising under the Right-to-Know Law. 

Handling governmental records requests requires an understanding of all aspects of request processing including: the requirements for availability, storage, electronic records, redaction, cost estimates, mandated access for certain records and appointments for review of records.

Guidance will be provided on determining what is a governmental record, and when and how access and copies of public records must be provided. This workshop will also address what records are exempt from disclosure, along with whether a record request that would require a search for multiple documents must be fulfilled or whether a request impermissibly seeks to create a record that does not exist. In addition, guidance will be provided on the retention of governmental records and how claims under the Right-to-Know Law are enforced.

There will be ample time for questions and answers.
