The Official Information Forum provides an opportunity for agency leaders and practitioners to come together to discuss official information practices, issues and to learn from each other.

The Official Information Forum is open to staff from all State sector agencies subject to the Official Information Act 1982.

Official Information Forum agendas can range from introductory sessions for those new to working with the Act, to the day-to-day implementation of the Act, to driving agency process and practice improvement.

A timetable of Forum events for the year is published below. This will be updated as dates and agendas are confirmed.
