Wisconsin Open Meetings Law DVD
Don’t have time to schedule Open Meetings training? Tired of reading complex statutes but need some quality training on Wisconsin Open Meetings Law? The Local Government Center and UW-Extension have produced an informative 10-part video, available on DVD. The DVD covers the Open Meetings Law with actors in a realistic setting, portraying real-world scenarios, followed by an explanation and analysis by an experienced attorney. This is a perfect way to provide needed training to your entire elected body. A copy of this DVD can be borrowed through the UW-Extension office in Douglas County. For more information, contact them at 715-395-1363. Submitted by Linda Bruce, Family and Community Development Educator, UW-Extension Douglas County.

With an office in each Wisconsin county, Cooperative Extension develops practical educational
programs tailored to local needs and based on university knowledge and research.
County-based Extension educators are University of Wisconsin faculty and staff who are
experts in agriculture and agribusiness, community and economic development,
natural resources, family living and youth development.
Extension county-based faculty and staff live and work with the people they
serve in communities across the state. Extension specialists work on UW System
campuses where they access current research and knowledge. Collaboration between
county and campus faculty is the hallmark of Cooperative Extension in Wisconsin.
