November 02, 2011 Open Meetings Law and the Procedure for Entering into and Exiting from an Executive Session
KEEPING YOU INFORMED…
As a general rule, New York’s Open Meetings Law (“OML”) requires that all meetings and/or sessions of a public body remain open to the public. Given the ever increasing demands for transparency of public entities, this memorandum reviews procedures for public bodies to move into and out of an executive session.
THIS MEMORANDUM IS MEANT TO ASSIST IN GENERAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE CURRENT LAW AND MAY CONSTITUTE ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. IT IS NOT TO BE REGARDED AS LEGAL ADVICE. THOSE WITH PARTICULAR QUESTIONS SHOULD SEEK THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL.
