Sunshine Laws Training Schedule

The Sunshine Laws Training provided by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office is a three-hour session, free of charge, provided to public officials or their appropriate designees and public employees, as well as members of the general public.
 
Ohio Revised Code Section 109.43(B) provides that:

The attorney general shall develop, provide, and certify training programs and seminars for all elected officials or their appropriate designees, and for all future officials who choose to satisfy the training requirement before taking office, in order to enhance the officials’ knowledge of the duty to provide access to public records as required by section 149.43 of the Revised Code and to enhance their knowledge of the open meetings laws set forth in section 121.22 of the Revised Code.  The training shall be three hours for every term of office for which the elected official or future official was appointed or elected to the public office involved.

Attendance at a session by an elected official or his or her designee satisfies the training requirement of R.C. 109.43. In addition each session is certified for three hours of Continuing Legal Education for Ohio attorneys. Each session includes an in-depth analysis of Ohio Public Records Act, and a brief review of Ohio’s Open Meetings Law. Attendance records are posted online at Sunshine Laws Training Attendance Reports.
 
The trainings are offered in Columbus and throughout Ohio, and are always open to members of the general public.
