 Questions & Resources

As State Agencies, Boards, Commissions, and Education Service Districts (ESDs) determine which meeting notices to post, they will be asking themselves:

​​Is it a "public meeting"? 
  • ​​Does the meeting involve a government entity of any type - local, regional or otherwise? (This entity is known as a "public body.")​
  • Do the people attending the meeting have authority to make decisions or recommendations to the public body? (This group is known as a "governing body.")​
  • Is a quorum required for the governing body to meet in order to make a decision?​
  • ​Is the governing body planning to make a decision or deliberate toward a decision of any type at the meeting?    
If the answer to all of these questions is "Yes", the meeting is a "public meeting" and falls under the requirements of HB2788. For additional information refer to ORS 192.610 to 192.690.​​
