The Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) has posted the 2010 version of the Open Meetings Compliance Guide and the Public Records Compliance Outline on its website:
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen will be hosting free seminars across Wisconsin to promote public awareness of and compliance with the state’s open meetings and public records law. At each seminar, Van Hollen will be accompanied by assistant attorneys general who are experts in Wisconsin’s open meetings and public records laws.

Seminars will be held in Madison (Sept. 20), Milwaukee (Sept. 27) and Wausau (Oct. 5). Each seminar is scheduled for three hours. In addition, a statewide videoconference seminar will take place Oct. 12 with viewing sites in Green Bay, La Crosse, Rice Lake and Racine.

Each seminar is free and open to the public, though advance registration is required due to limited seating. Individuals are invited to register at the Wisconsin Department of Justice website at Registrants should provide their name, title, organization or agency, and identify the seminar they wish to attend.
