2007 National FOI Day Conference

            The 2007 National FOI Day Conference will be held as usual this 
year on March 16. The venue for this year's event will change, however, from 
the rooftop conference center at the Freedom Forum in Arlington to the National 
Press Club in Washington, D.C.

The conference brings together access advocates, government officials, lawyers, 
librarians, journalists, educators and others to discuss the latest issues and 
developments in access to government information and the public's right to know.

            This ninth annual FOI Day Conference is sponsored by the First 
Amendment Center. Sunshine Week will co-sponsor the event, which will be held 
in cooperation with the American Library Association, OpenTheGovernment.org and 
the Coalition of Journalists for Open Government.

            More than a dozen nationally known speakers and presenters will 
appear on the program and the agenda will include discussions of government 
secrecy, publication of classified information and access priorities for the 
coming year. The American Library Association will present its annual James 
Madison awards and new reports and publications will be released.

            As the conference agenda is finalized, program details will be 
announced on the First Amendment Center web site at:

            www.firstamendmentcenter.org

            The conference will begin with continental breakfast at 8 a.m. for 
those arriving early, with the actual programming beginning at 8:30 a.m. The 
conference will end by 2:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend, but because we 
have somewhat limited space, participants must register individually in advance.

            To register for the 2007 National FOI Day Conference, you should -

.       Send an email to foidayconference@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

.       Or call 703-284-2805 and leave a message.

When registering, please provide your name, title, affiliation and contact 
information and let us know whether you will be attending the lunch.

We look forward to seeing you at this year's conference.
