State Auditor offers open government training

The Washington State Auditor’s Office Local Government Performance Center has partnered with the Municipal Research and Services Center of Washington to develop tools and resources that will provide practical assistance and a guide to best practices. The training sessions are free of charge and designed to help elected and appointed local government leaders excel in records management and compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act and the Public Records Act.

The sessions will also include a presentation by State Auditor’s Office staff on the role of their office and common issues that arise during an audit.

Seating is limited. Sign up for these transparency training sessions now: Longview (May 7), Wenatchee (June 16), Spokane (June 18), Everett (July 9), Tacoma (July 10), Yakima (September 17) and Tri-Cities (September 18).

You are also invited to sign up for evening Transparency Town Halls that will follow the training sessions in Wenatchee and Everett. These events are to provide members of the public the opportunity to better understand the role of the State Auditor’s Office in government transparency, and to offer their questions and comments.
