The Open Meetings Act: Understanding its Significance, Avoiding Penalties & Ensuring School Board Compliance
Maryland’s Open Meeting Act is more complicated than just providing public notice of your meetings. This workshop will help you and your School Board colleagues by providing an in-depth overview of Maryland’s Open Meetings Act, and discussing some of the cases and complaints that have come before the Open Meetings Compliance Board. Maryland law now requires that at least one member of the Board be designated to receive training on the Open Meetings Act and it is highly recommended that all members be familiar with the Act. MABE is one of only a few non-governmental entities that are allowed, under Maryland law, to provide this important training.
