As public relations professionals working in Florida, it is important to be aware of the state’s broad open public records law. While private companies are not subject to open record laws, most companies may interact with a government entity or public agency in one way or another. Do you understand your organization’s responsibilities and liabilities under the “sunshine” law?

Join the Jacksonville Chapter of FPRA on Thursday, May 22 for a highly informative program about public records. Alexis Lambert, Esq., manager of the Office of Public Accountability for the City of Jacksonville, will provide an overview of Florida’s Sunshine Law and the types of information that are subject to the open record law.
