Simplifying the FOI impacts of the New Local Government Act

Morning videoconference session

Important and significant changes have been made to how freedom of information laws are applied by councils in Victoria.  Those changes were introduced by the new Local Government Act 2020 (LGAct 2020).

Join Mick Batskos for this council-specific session.  Mick is the Executive Director of FOI Solutions and an Accredited Specialist in Administrative Law.  He will break down and simplify the impact LGAct 2020 has had on FOI processing for councils.

In this one hour videoconference you will learn:

  • what council-specific provision has been removed from the Victorian FOI Act
  • what effect that will have
  • what council-specific provisions remain
  • how the LGAct 2020 may have greatly expanded what is exempt

The videoconference will be conducted using WebEx (end to end encryption).  For information about how this will work, click here for FAQs.
