A first in a series of meetings to help educate elected officials or anyone considering running for office on any level is set for Thursday.

"Introduction to Public Office" will be presented at the Effingham County Office Building in the ground floor Education Room from 5:30 to 6:30pm. 

Two items will be the focus; proper procedures for filing petitions for office, and election finance rules and regulations.

The workshop is sponsored by the U of I Extension Office in Effingham County and the Effingham County Chamber of Commerce. There is no cost to attend. Register by emailing Ken Larimore at so organizers can arrange for accommodations. 

If you have any questions or need special access, contact Ken Larimore at his email address or phone 618-783-3409. You can also phone the Chamber office at 342-4147.
