Open Meetings Act Reminder: We’re back in person

Beginning in 2020, the General Assembly passed several bills that temporarily permitted public bodies to meet virtually instead of in person, as required by Ohio’s Open Meetings Act (R.C. 121.22).  The most recent legislation allowing virtual meetings took effect Feb. 17, 2022, and expired June 30, 2022. (See Substitute House Bill 51.) 


Training Reminder:

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office’s continues to regularly provide three-hour certified public-records training. This comprehensive training is open to the public and covers the Public Records Act and the Open Meetings Act. Attorneys can receive three hours of free Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for attending. We have in-person and WebEx trainings scheduled through December 2022. The current schedule and registration information are available here.
