Public Meetings

What is a Public Meeting?

The 2011 Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2788, requiring State Agencies, Boards, Commissions, and Education Service Districts (ESDs) to "...post on the Oregon Transparency website notices of public meetings required to be provided by the state agency under ORS 192.640."    
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 HB2788For additional information refer to ORS 192.610 to 192.690.
