Panel to discuss accessing public officials during pandemic

Before the pandemic, journalists could always count on finding elusive public officials by going to a board or committee meeting. With many of those meetings being held online, public officials are finding it easier to avoid journalists and the public.

How are journalists getting around this and other hurdles brought about by the pandemic? What are their legal options?

The Wisconsin Newspaper Association and the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association have assembled a panel of journalists and experts on open government to discuss these issues.

Join us at 10 a.m. Nov. 19 via Zoom for this educational webinar. The session is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.
