      D.C. Open Government Summit Celebrates Sunshine Week 2016

      Celebrating Sunshine Week 2016, the National Press Club’s Freedom of the Press Committee will join with the D.C. Open Government Coalition to present the fifth annual D.C. Open Government Summit on March 15 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm. The 2016 D.C. Open Government Summit will focus on the state of government transparency in the District of Columbia. At the event, we will discuss pending legislation to overhaul the D.C. Freedom of Information Act and D.C. Open Meetings Act. We will also discuss the District’s first-ever draft Open Data Policy, which is currently being prepared for final public comment, as well as possible legislative standards related to open data. Attendees will be invited to weigh in with their thoughts on these and other topics. The event is free and open to all, but pre-registration is required. A reception will follow the program. The D.C. Open Government Coalition works to enhance the public’s access to government information and ensure the transparency in the D.C. government. Sunshine Week is a non-partisan, non-profit initiative celebrated in mid-March each year to coincide with James Madison’s birthday on March 16 as a means of promoting a dialogue on the importance of open government and freedom of information.      Event Info: National Press Club Journalism Institute 529 14th St. NW 13th Floor Holeman Lounge Washington, DC 20045 March 15th 6:30 pm -9:00 pm Free tickets. Registration required.
