Townships, like other government entities, are increasingly turning to social media as an efficient and effective way to communicate about township meetings, activities, and events. As this practice continues, township officials and employees should be aware of the legal issues that can arise in connection with government use of social media. In this webinar, Julie will discuss best practices for compliance with the Open Meetings Act, FOIA, records retention laws, and the First Amendment, provide guidance on the moderation of comments, and share tips for creating a social media policy for the administration of township social media sites.
