Understanding the Brown Act and Recent Legislation
Date: November 28th, 2022
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Academic Senates have the opportunity to promote transparency and inclusion by complying with the Brown Open Meeting Act, as well as a legal obligation to do so. Actions taken by the Governor and legislature during the pandemic enabled remote meetings. The latest bill focused on open meetings, AB 2449 (Rubio, 2022), was signed into law in September and will take effect January 1, 2023. Its provisions impact the Brown Open Meeting Act, and interact with the pre-pandemic version of the Brown Act as well as AB 361 (Rivas, 2021). Join the chairs of the ASCCC Legislation and Advocacy and ASCCC Standards and Practices Committees for a webinar focused on helping local senate leaders understand the basics of each bill, how the bills interact with provisions of the Brown Open Meeting Act, and whether remote or hybrid meetings will be possible in the spring. This webinar will be recorded.
