About the Event
Following on from the CEO Conversation event, the Scottish Information Commissioner will be delivering free events for the sector, as RSLs work towards the “go live” date of 11 November 2019.
These events are aimed at those who will be responsible for the implementation of FOI, and training other staff within their organisation. A programme will be available following the CEO conversation events, at which the content will be discussed.
The first round of these will take place:
- Edinburgh, Monday 20 May 2019 hosted by SFHA
- Glasgow, Tuesday 21 May hosted by SFHA and GWSF
Given the anticipated high demand for these events, we will have to in the first instance limit attendance to one delegate per organisation. We will keep a waiting list of anyone who is unable to attend because of this restriction, and let you know if places become available.
A further training event, building on the feedback received through the first events and during the implementation period, will take place in September (again both in Glasgow and Edinburgh). Dates will be confirmed for this in due course.

This includes handling appeals about the way in which Scottish public authorities respond to information requests, promoting good practice and monitoring and assessing FOI performance.
