meetings and to provide proper notice and detailed records of meetings.
The OMA Complaint Form may be submitted in person, online at OPEN-DC.gov, or via U.S Postal Service

be marked on the outside of the envelope “Open Meetings Complaint”. Complaints may also be
submitted by electronic mail at email@example.com. The submission of complaints via the Website is
encouraged so that information is complete, but is not required. The Director will confirm receipt of a
complaint within five (5) business days upon receipt of the complaint. The Director will review a
complaint within within fourteen (14) business days.
Complaints should include details of the meeting complained of, including the Public Body, the date, and
