Subject: PIDB Public Meeting Announcement - July 8, 2009
The public PIDB meeting that will be held on Wednesday, July 8, 2009, from 9:30 
a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 
The meeting will be held in the Archivist Reception Room (Room 105) of the 
National Archives and Records Administration, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, 
Washington, D.C. 20408-0001. 
At the meeting, the Board will solicit public input concerning recommendations 
and proposed revisions to the classification and declassification policies 
found in Executive Order 12958, as amended, "Classified National Security 
Information" (the Order).  This action is being taken at the request of the 
National Security Advisor and in support of the ongoing review of the Order 
directed by President Barack Obama on May 27, 2009.
In addition to the public meeting, the PIDB hopes to launch and use a blog to 
solicit recommendations for revisions to the Order in four topical areas: 
declassification, creation of a National Declassification Center, 
classification, and technology challenges and opportunities. 
Once posted, each topic would be available for comments for three days. 
At the conclusion of the third day, the comment function on the topic would be 
turned off and the next topic would begin the following day. 
After each topic closes, a concluding summary would be posted to the blog.  We 
intend on sending you an e-mail in advance of launching the blog.
If you are unable to attend the July 8, 2009, meeting, the PIDB will also 
accept input via the blog or via email (PIDB@xxxxxxxx), fax (202-357-5907), and 
U.S. mail (Public Interest Declassification Board, National Archives and 
Records Administration, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Room 100, Washington, D.C.
