Registration Now Open for the PIDB Public Meeting on June 19, 2014

The Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB) will host a public meeting to discuss the recommendations included in its Report to the President on Transforming the Security Classification System, and its recommendation to re-examine the classification status of obsolete and historical Formerly Restricted Data (FRD) information. The meeting will focus on new processes to support the President’s commitment to implement a systematic review process for the declassification of this information.  In his Second Open Government National Action Plan, he directed the Classification Review Committee to work with Executive branch agencies to design a review process that allows the public to help identify priorities.  The Archivist of the United States, David S. Ferriero will offer opening remarks, and senior officials from Executive branch agencies will discuss the process and progress of the newly created “Formerly Restricted Data Declassification Working Group.”

This meeting is open to the public.  However, due to space limitations and access procedures, we require individuals planning to attend the meeting to register on Eventbrite.

WHEN: Thursday, June 19, 2014, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: National Archives and Records Administration, Room 105 – Archivist’s Reception Room, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20408
