A free one-day conference on a
new era in transparent government
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT, BUT JOIN OUR WEBCAST AT:
The Hon. Former Senator
White House CIO
In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Freedom of Information Act, a landmark law that has ever since changed how citizens can learn about their government.
President Barack Obama's "Day One" action, on January 21, 2009, emphasized his commitment to open and free government information, spelled out in his Freedom of Information Act Memorandum, the very first order the new President issued from the White House. Already there is an explosion of new tools on the Internet to access government information in innovative ways.
The one-day conference, “Open Government on the Internet: A New Era of Transparency,” will look at these developments through the eyes of nationally prominent speakers and the participation of the audience. On May 15, 2009, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum, and the LBJ School of Public Affairs of the University of Texas at Austin, in co-sponsorship with the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas, will co-host this one-day conference with speakers and panelists interacting simultaneously, through videoconferencing, in Austin, Texas and Washington, D.C.
