First Friday Luncheon – Expungement Day Informational Meeting

Join us for the March First Friday Luncheon at the Holiday Inn Effingham!

Topic: Expungement Day Informational Meeting

Speakers: Kaye DeSelms Dent, Managing Partner | Dent Coulson Elder Law, LLC
Susan Zielke, Managing Attorney | Land of Lincoln Legal Aid, Eastern Regional Office

Minor past infractions can sometimes be a bar to employment or promotion and can limit the pool of worthy job applicants. Expungement removes these infractions from a potential employee’s criminal record.

The Effingham County Chamber in partnership with our Workforce Development Committee and volunteer attorneys from Effingham are planning an Expungement Day event on October 14, 2023. The goal for the event will be to help people with qualifying arrests and convictions petition the court to expunge or seal their records.

The First Friday Luncheon Informational Meeting is a great resource for Chamber businesses (& community businesses) who are interested in becoming a second-chance employer, businesses who want to further expand their company in doing more to help these individuals, or community members who need a second-chance at making a positive impact from their past.

Cost: $20 per person
