Sec’y Of State’s Office Offering Open Government Training

"Secretary of State Jim Condos, who took office in January, developed the idea after hearing from public officials about the lack of training or understanding about Vermont’s open government laws covering public records and open meetings."

Given the number of high-profile public records’ lawsuits VSEA has filed in recent years (remember Marshal86?), members are urged to become more familiar with Vermont’s open gov’t laws and then use what you learn to help your union craft new ones as needed.
