Public records workshop at WCU

Written by 

“Full Disclosure,” a public records workshop, will be held from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 15, in Room 144 of WCU’s Stillwell Building.

The workshop will provide information on the existing laws and advice on drafting a request for information and publishing news stories from the data, Spasovska said.

Trainers include Charles Coble, an attorney with Brooks Pierce, who will discuss the North Carolina Public Records Law and its challenges, changes and application; Jon Elliston, a contributing reporter with Carolina Public Press, who will examine the Freedom of Information Act and case studies, and talk about where, when and how to find information; and Angie Newsome, editor and founder of Carolina Public Press, who will discuss putting the laws into practice, crafting a good request and getting results published.

Seating for the workshop is limited and tickets are required. Admission is free for WCU students and $20 for others.
