Description

Join us for the City of Austin's Open Government Symposium 2019! This one-day event brings together local government officials, open government practitioners, and community advocates to discuss current issues in open government, transparency, and ethics.

Our discussion topics include transparency in policing, changes in voting, and legislative updates. See the full schedule and speaker list below. We're particularly excited that Two Guys on Your Head will be speaking!

This event is open to the public. Advance registration is requested to ensure adequate seating. CLE credit is available for the State Bar of Texas; the Symposium has been approved for five hours of MCLE, including one hours of ethics.

The symposium will be in the Special Event Center in the Austin Central Library. Doors open at 8:00 a.m., and coffee and light refreshments will be served. Lunch is on your own, providing ample opportunity to enjoy the library’s Cookbook Café or to explore downtown Austin's Second Street District.
