Extract from Brenda Dodd's article "Best Practices and Professional Standards in Public Disclosures"
Daniel Bevarly, executive director of the National Freedom of Information Coalition and myself, will lead a discussion on best practices and professional standards for a sound public disclosure process at the upcoming IMLA Annual Conference in Atlanta, Georgia next week.
We will be talking about the latest issues and trends around freedom of information laws, policies and practices at the state and local levels. The session aims to support agencies that are struggling to meet the ever-increasing demands of transparency and open records requests.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
