A reception to honor the late Delegate Chip Woodrum

The Virginia Coalition for Open Government held a reception in honor of the late Delegate Chip Woodrum on November 13 at Center in the Square in Roanoke.

Woodrum was one of the strongest voices for open government in the General Assembly, when he served in the 1990s and 2000s, and was largely responsible for the major overhaul of FOIA in 1999 and the creation of the FOIA Council. He was the council's first chair, and he served on VCOG's board of directors.
