Soul of the Community meeting set for CCU

September 14, 2011

Coastal Carolina University is hosting the Soul of the Community meeting on Thursday, Sept. 15 from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Wall Auditorium of the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. The public is invited.

Area community leaders are gathering to discuss the Knight Soul of the Community report, which was conducted over a three year-period in 26 U.S. cities including Myrtle Beach, to determine what connects people emotionally to where they live. The report has found a positive correlation between specific community attributes and local economic success. Four factors were determined to have strong correlations to community attachment: young leaders, aesthetics, social offerings and openness.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the report's findings and the four community attributes in particular.
