About the Webinar:
Congratulations! You have been elected to the public hospital board. Now the board secretary handed you a notebook of past agendas, and board minutes and asked you to chair next week’s scheduled board meeting - what do you do now?!
This webinar will focus on the key things public board members need to know to comply with the Texas Open Meetings Act rules for agendas, quorums, meetings, closed sessions, and the appropriate minutes for each. The session will also address top issues for responding to public information requests under the Texas Public Information Act.
