City Clerks Workshop: The California Public Records Act
The California Public Records Act (CPRA), established in 1968, requires public inspection and disclosure of government records upon request unless otherwise exempted by law. Almost half a century later, the traditional view of the CPRA is being challenged. Instant access to information is seen not only as the right of an individual but a broader expectation of modern day society. In a world where human interactions are electronically recorded and instantly available in real-time, reevaluation of CPRA views is prudent and necessary to ensure government maintains pace with the community it serves. Explore the historical, legal and social applications of the CPRA, and to identify challenges and opportunities.
This workshop requires additional registration of $150 per member city or $300 per non-member city. The workshop begins with a business meeting from 10-10:30 a.m. followed by the four- hour workshop, and includes lunch.
CMC/MMC Advanced Education Point accreditation will be available.
