Massachusetts' Open Meeting Law is intended to give citizens transparent access to the workings of public bodies, but what constitutes an Open Meeting and how meetings should be run, can be surprisingly open to dispute. Since 2010, the Attorney General's office has been centrally responsible for enforcing the Open Meeting Law and has published its Open Meeting Law Determinations on its website.
This autumn, the Attorney General will be holding three educational training forums for members of state, county, local and regional public bodies. The general public is also invited to attend.
