Representatives of Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office will hold a free educational forum on the state’s open meeting requirements Wednesday at 6 p.m. at 119 School St. The regional forum is part of a broad effort by the attorney general’s office to help public officials understand and comply with requirements of the state’s Open Meeting Law, which sets strict limits on the issues that can be discussed behind closed doors or outside of official meetings. Municipal board and committee members, employees, and area residents are encouraged to attend the forum, which will be presented by the attorney general’s Division of Open Government. Registration in advance is requested, and can be arranged by calling 617-963-2925 or e-mailing omltraining@state.ma.us. For more information on the forum or on the Open Meeting Law, visit www.mass.gov/ago/openmeeting.
