Week 1 Public Policy Meeting Approval
What is a public policy meeting? A meeting held by public or governmental officials to discuss and deal with public problems or issues, communicate and disseminate information, and engage in problem-solving, policy change strategizing and/or decision making. Open public policy meetings are when the public’s business is conducted in open, noticed meetings, where the public, lobbyists and members of the news media have the right to attend, record, broadcast, and in some cases participate in the meeting. An open meeting agenda is usually posted in advance and meeting materials may be made available.
Create a post seeking approval for your public policy meeting. Choose a meeting to view or attend. It must be a public policy body at work and related to health care. If it is a recorded meeting, please make sure it has been posted within the last year. Title the post with your name and the name of the policy meeting.
For example: Smith: Affordable Health Care Policy Meeting. In the body of the post include the title or topic focus of the policy meeting the date and time of the meeting the location of the meeting (if online, include the website). Some websites are:
