The mission of the Effingham Tourism Department is to enhance the economic development of our region through the promotion of tourism and the comprehensive marketing of our destination.  Through the establishment of a local convention and visitors bureau, the Tourism Department helps to create business for the City of Effingham and surrounding communities by aggressively promoting the City as an overnight destination and by increasing visitor awareness of the area, which provides an economic benefit to the City.


Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month, as listed below. The board meets at 1:45 p.m. at the Effingham Visitor's Center, except for December's meeting, which is held at 11:30 a.m. If you have any questions, please contact the Effingham Visitor's Center at 217-342-5310. Thank you!
