Navigating New Laws and Protocols Around Public Meetings: The Brown Act and Other Considerations
Over the last two years, local governments have pivoted to virtual and hybrid council and board meetings to ensure transparency and maintain opportunities for the public to engage with their elected officials. Now, with new changes to the open meeting laws, and the return to more in person activities, local governments are being asked to pivot yet again. On this webinar, panelists shared updates on the open meeting laws, best practices for running virtual public meetings and lessons learned as local governments navigate hybrid, and the return to, in-person council and board meetings.
