The Policy Committee guides the OPRA Board of Directors and OPRA staff by suggesting specific policy issues and stances OPRA should advocate on behalf on. During the monthly committee meetings, any OPRA Member can participate in discussions on specific issues. After these conversations, the voting members of the Policy Committee vote to make a recommendation to the Board that a specific issue be taken up as a priority issue or a specific stance should be adopted as OPRA’s official stance. These recommendations go to the OPRA Board of Directors who vote on OPRA’s official stance on policy issues.
