This year’s conference, “FOIA at Forty: The Past’s Lessons for the Future,” was held on Thursday, March 16, at the Freedom Forum’s World Center in Arlington, Va. The symposium brought together access advocates, government officials, lawyers, librarians, journalists, educators and others to discuss the latest issues and developments in freedom of information.

This eighth annual FOI Day conference was sponsored by the First Amendment Center in cooperation with the American Library Association. Additionally, as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the federal Freedom of Information Act, Sunshine Week, which ran March 12-18, co-sponsored the conference.
