Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire Executive Director Jill Cheeks will present to members of the Rotary Club of East Savannah at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26 2018 at the Pirates House, 20 E. Broad St., Savannah.

Cheeks’ presentation will provide background information on the Mediation Center, which is staffed with a team of experienced mediators who are trained to help residents in Chatham, Bryan, Effingham, Liberty, Tattnall and Bulloch counties resolve legal disputes without turning to litigation. The organization’s reputation is built on over 30 years of integrity and expertise, with a high success rate in resolving thousands of conflicts through resolution.

Cheeks has spoken and given presentations at various civic organizations and educational institutions around the Coastal Empire, including Armstrong State University. She also provides workplace conflict resolution and facilitation services through the Mediation Center and has worked in partnership with many local businesses. Cheeks is eager to share the Mediation Center’s mission with Savannah Rotarians.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to speak with some of the area’s most noteworthy leaders and community pillars. Creating awareness for what we do and forming viable partnerships and collaborations is as essential as the mediation services the center provides, and I’m looking forward to this chance to garner additional support and keep us moving in a positive direction,” Cheeks said.
