Opportunities for Returning Citizens

July 19, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Coming up next month on Tuesday, July 19th from 9am-12pm, the Ottumwa Chapter of Employers Council of Iowa invites you to attend ‘Opportunities for Returning Citizens’ training at IowaWORKS. Hear from representatives from 8th Judicial District and Iowa Workforce Development on programs and partnerships that can help your business successfully recruit and retain returning citizens.


This program is recognized by SHRM and is valid for 3 PDCs. To register for this in-person ECI event, please visit http://www.tinyurl.com/OttumwaECIJuly22.


Returning citizens are a viable, yet untapped workforce labor pool. There are several employer incentives to encourage the hiring of returning citizens and giving them a second chance! Learn more about the ways that the 8th Judicial District has successfully partnered with employers to support reentry, the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, Federal Bonding and Reentry programs through IowaWORKS.


Presenting will be Patrick Lacy, Division Manager of Special Services for the Iowa 8th Judicial District Department of Correctional Services. Lindsay Epperson, Community Treatment/Reentry Coordinator for the Iowa 8th Judicial District Department of Correctional Services (Probation/Parole). Richelle Seitz, Reentry Workforce Program Coordinator for Iowa Workforce Development and the Federal Bonding Program Coordinator for the State of Iowa.
