Custodian of Public Record and Open Records Request Training

The Iowa Extension Council Association has organized a training on December 7, 2020, “Custodian of Public Record and Open Records Request Training” at 1pm. Each county must identify one individual to serve as the custodian of public record to receive open records requests. Once you’ve identified who that person will be, please ensure they register to attend so we know that each county is covered.
