Open Meeting Policy

Members of the public are welcome to attend and observe all “open” meetings of the Authority and its committees.  All persons are permitted to attend any such meeting and no person is required as a condition to attendance of any such meeting to register his or her name or to provide any other information.

An area is reserved for seating by members of the public, and in order that the business of the meeting can be administered in a fair and orderly fashion, we request members of the public to remain in these reserved areas and to maintain decorum during the deliberations of the Authority or its committees.  In order to assist you in following the deliberations during the meeting, copies of the agenda of the meeting are available to you.  If you are interested in appearing before the Authority to discuss matters of general interest, you should request to be placed on the agenda.  Any such request must be submitted in writing to the Executive Director of the Authority no less than ten (10) days prior to the meeting.

Your presence at the “open” meetings of the Authority or its committees is appreciated.  We trust that your attendance and observations of these “open” meetings of the Authority and its committees will be informative to you and will help you to understand the Authority’s aims and activities in its efforts to serve all of the people of the State of Mississippi.

(As adopted by the Board of Directors, March 28, 1979; amended September 22, 1982.)
