Guidelines for Public Participation in Meetings of the NPR Board of Directors
Regular meetings of the NPR Board and its committees are open to the public, although some portions of those meetings may be held in closed executive session.
Pursuant to Section 396(k)(4) of the Communications Act, meetings of the NPR Board and its committees may move into executive session and be closed to the public "to consider matters relating to individual employees, proprietary information, litigation and other matters requiring the confidential advice of counsel, commercial or financial information obtained from a person on a privileged or confidential basis, or the purchase of property or services whenever the premature exposure of such purchase would compromise the business interests of [NPR]."
For additional information regarding NPR Board meetings or to request written statements explaining the reasons for closing meetings of the NPR Board or its committees, Contact Us. On the Contact Us form, under "I Want To" select "Contact an NPR Department or Service" and then under "Departments" select "NPR Management."
