Civitan Meeting 1HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 31, 2013 – High Point University recently hosted 100 Civitans for North Carolina East’s District Wide Meeting and offered suggestions on how to improve the organization.

During the meeting, Dr. Daniel Hall, assistant professor of economics and Campus Civitan faculty advisor, service learning students and Campus Civitans gave a presentation emphasizing the importance of young professionals to the future of Civitan International. They also gave recommendations for improving the Civitans and attracting young professionals to become members.

“While the importance of the youth is clear to the older adult Civitans, they were still amazed by what our extraordinary students could accomplish as well as the ideas they can bring to Civitan International, ” said Hall.

The service learning students partnered with the Civitans as part of a microeconomics course led by Hall. The students also presented service projects they completed over the past semester which included serving dinner at Open Door Ministries, building homes with Habitat for Humanity, volunteering with the Special Olympics and much more.

Civitan International is an organization of volunteer service clubs around the world, dedicated to helping people in their own communities.
