SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Robert J. Freeman is executive director of the Committee on Open Government. He’s a staple of most New York journalists’ Rolodex.

His agency is responsible for overseeing implementation of the Freedom of Information Law and the Open Meetings Law, which govern the people of New York’s rights to access government records and meetings of public bodies. Reporters covering government – and otherwise – turn to Bob on a daily basis for help writing FOIA requests, appealing denials and forming arguments to make to public records officers.

Bob will share his decades of wisdom on open government with the Syracuse journalism community. 

When: Nov. 19 at 7 p.m.

Where: Newhouse III, Room 141

Directions: The street address is 215 University Place, but the entrance to Newhouse III is on Waverly Avenue near the intersection of South Crouse Avenue. Look for the big glass windows and doors and the First Amendment written on the side of the building.

Parking: You can try to find street parking on Waverly Ave., Marshall Street or Walnut Ave. Several parking garages are within short walking distance, including the Sheraton at 801 University Ave and Waverly Parking, located at 805 S. Crouse Ave.
