North Carolina Open Government Coalition Plans Sunshine Day Celebration for March 20

The board of the NC Open Government Coalition, working in tandem with its Sunshine Center at Elon University, is organizing a workshop to celebrate the state’s open government laws on March 20, 2008. 

The event is scheduled to include an interactive workshop featuring a public records request to a local school board.  Confirmed panelists include former superintendent of schools for Durham County Ann Denlinger, Winston Salem-Forsyth County School Board Attorney Drew Davis, Alamance County Commission Chairman Larry Thorpe and Fayetteville Observer Managing Editor Mike Arnholt.   The panel will be led by Elon Law school professor Eric Fink, and the goal is to create a simulation where the audience can weigh in on the issues that emerge.

The March 20 event will also include the showcasing of a new publication by the Attorney General’s office and the North Carolina Press Association, a citizen’s resource on open government laws in the state.  A review of North Carolina’s year in open government will be presented by Mark Prak, an attorney in the law firm Brooks Pierce.
