Illinois Attorney General to Host FOIA Webinar

The Illinois Attorney General’s Office will host a webinar on November 6, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to help public bodies and FOIA officers with responding to requests for records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The webinar will cover basic FOIA requirements, frequently used exemptions, redacting information, and responses to request public records. The webinar will also discuss the Public Access Counselor (PAC) review process and common issues reported by the PAC.

To RSVP, email your name, title, public body, and email address to specialevents@atg.state.il.us by October 30, 2020. Space is limited, so the Attorney General’s Office encourages interested participants to register as soon as possible.

Participants may email FOIA questions in advance to specialevents@atg.state.il.us and contact the Attorney General with any other questions or requests for reasonable accommodations at specialevents@atg.state.il.us or calling 1-866-376-7215 (TTY: 1-800-964-3013).
