NHMA Webinar:  The Right-to-Know Law and Governmental Meetings

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Wednesday, March 13, 2019


Join NHMA's Executive Director Margaret Byrnes and Legal Services Counsel Stephen Buckley who will share strategies to assist municipalities in handling governmental record matters arising under the State’s Right-to-Know Law (RSA 91-A).

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.

This webinar is open to all members of the New Hampshire Municipal Association.
