The 2010 FOI Summit in Arlington is now a part of FOI Summit history.
The two-day event concluded the afternoon of May 8, but the lessons learned and contacts made bode well for FOI in the future.
In case you missed the conference in part or in its entirety—or if you just want to revisit your favorite sessions—be sure to check out our blog coverage, including posts on:
- The keynote speech from Miriam Nisbet.
- Panels on FOI Litigation, Transparency in the Digital Age, and Coalition Sustainability.
- Recognition for the great work done by Executive Director Charles Davis, as he steps down concurrent with NFOIC’s hiring of a full-time director.
- Robert J. Freeman’s induction into the Open Government Hall of Fame.
Obviously, any endeavor of this nature takes a lot of work and a lot of cooperation, and we could not do it ourselves.
In recognition of that, the National Freedom of Information Coalition would like to thank:
- Our host, the Virginia Coalition for Open Government, for all their hard work.
- Ms. Miriam Nisbet, from the Office of Government Information Services, for joining us and delivering our keynote address.
- Our excellent panelists for their expertise and commitment to the cause.
- Our generous sponsors, without whom we would be unable to have the conference.
- Elizabeth Billingsley and Mike Martinez (from the Missouri School of Journalism) for their efforts in covering the conference and generally helping out wherever they could, and
- The wonderful folks at the Hyatt Arlington.
Finally, of course, we are grateful to all conference attendees for their support. Without them, we’d just be talking to ourselves, and that would do little to advance the FOI cause.
Thanks for visiting, and we hope to see you next year.
