Trine University Columbus plans lunch and learn event

ANGOLA, Ind. – Local residents can choose from two topics during an Aug. 20 lunch and learn event offered by Trine University School of Professional Studies.

One presentation is about Indiana’s expungement law and the other addresses ways to maximize human potential.

Indiana attorney Barbara Molargik-Fitch, J.D., will cover “Indiana’s Expungement Law and How it Affects You.” The Indiana law, as revised in 2014, allows individuals to expunge certain offenses from their criminal records. The new law, also known as the “Second Chance Law,” is intended to give individuals a second chance.

“Many individuals have expressed interest in learning about this law,” said Barbara Molargik-Fitch, director of Trine’s Master of Science in Criminal Justice Program. “We appreciate an opportunity to meet area residents and explain the basics of the law.”

The other option is “Maximizing Your Human Capital,” featuring expert information on honing job skills and motivating others.

“In today’s challenging market, it’s imperative to find a way to retain and develop top talent,” said Nancy Steigmeyer, director of Trine’s Lou Holtz Master of Science in Leadership Program. “Professionals can join us, network and learn how to maximize human potential.”

Highlights of the presentation will include:

  • The value of performance management and employee motivation;
  • The best practices to ensure fair employment, selection and protection;
  • Top interviewing skills and techniques;
  • How to maximize and motivate human potential.

The event begins with lunch and social time at 11:30 a.m. with the presentations from noon to 1 p.m. Participants may also opt to enjoy lunch during the selected presentation.
