In this ever-changing world of social media, governing bodies and their elected representatives need to adapt to the new landscape and make themselves available to the public in as many channels as possible. This has several legal, ethical, and technical complications that most are unaware of. The purpose of this webinar series is to approach each of those domains and present information based on regulations and industry best-practice standards to prepare and equip governing bodies to safely, effectively, and effortlessly use social media platforms to serve their citizenry.
Part 1 aims to address the legal implications of offering Social Media platforms on behalf of the municipality, an elected official, or an employee of the municipality in respect to OPRA. What officially counts as “OPRAable?” and needs to be retained? If so for how long? Who has access to this information and who can request it? This part of the series will address these questions and more.
Seminar Cancellations must be recieved at least 48 hours before the date of the seminar.
