Get your questions answered, hear some outrageous stories and make sure the Sunshine Act is working for you.

This session will cover definitions, procedures, violations and remedies for violations.  We’ll touch on public comment, recording, executive sessions and other issues that frequently challenge your coverage. Melissa Melewsky, PNA’s Media Law Counsel, offers invaluable information and advice while citing examples. Most appropriate for editorial staffs, especially for those who want to dig a little deeper or need a refresher course.

LEARN FROM EACH OTHER!  When registering, please submit specific questions that Melissa can address.  Or share the whackiest Sunshine Act problem you’ve encountered.   Your participation will make this session more helpful for everyone.

This one-hour webinar is scheduled to begin promptly at 12 noon.

Cost is just $10 per login for PNA members; $20 for non-members.

Registrants must have both a computer and audio/phone in order to participate.  Gather your newsroom together in one room and have lunch and learn! Still only $10 with no limit on the number participating.

To register, email foundation@pa-news.org or phone (717) 703-3003. Participation instructions will be emailed one to two days before the session.
