Save the Date - Right-to-Know Law and Governmental Records

Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Newington Town Hall, 205 Nimble Hill Road, Newington, NH 03801

Cost:  $40.00

Join NHMA's Legal Services attorneys 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.

 Registration opens six weeks before event.  Check back frequently for registration link.
