FOI Oklahoma seeks nominations for at large directors

Freedom of Information Oklahoma Inc. is seeking applicants to serve in at large positions on its board of directors for 2011.

FOI Oklahoma is a statewide organization that promotes open government through seminars and school programs and encourages state and local officials to comply with the state's Open Meeting and Open Records laws. It also advocates for citizens denied access to government records and proceedings.

Its members include teachers, politicians, journalists, librarians and other citizens who believe government of the people means that citizens must have access to their government to have the power to affect it.

Those who wish to apply for an at large board position should contact Mark Hanebutt, nominating chair, at 100 N. University Drive, Edmond, OK 73034, or by e-mail at, before Monday, Nov. 8.
