How Legislation and Current Events have Changed the Public Records Landscape
Managing requests for public records is hard. Staying organized, coordinating moving parts, and remaining compliant with evolving compliance mandates is no small task. This presentation will discuss several rulings and pieces of legislation that have had a notable impact on those managing requests for public records: (1) How a single word like “Extraction” can create a haze of confusion; (2) how the explosion of video has outpaced some departmental policies; and (3) how work-from-home mandates have created headaches for tech-challenged departments. This presentation will also share the latest numbers and survey results from the Peers in Public Records Index, a quantifiable picture of the 124% growth in request processing complexity over the past 3 years. Additional topics may be included.
Speakers: Jen Snyder, Melanie Pusateri & Moses Johnson
