Club

If you’re a student in the DTCC Paralegal Program, you’re able to become a club member! All you need to do is come to the club meetings, which are typically held on campus at a convenient time for both day and evening students. The Paralegal Technology Club is an association for paralegal students created to promote scholarship, increase awareness of the paralegal profession, and provide information and opportunities for prospective employment.

Any club member can be nominated for office. A club member may nominate themselves

The club follows Durham Technical Community College’s policy on Student Activities.

There are typically three positions. Their expected responsibilities may include but are not limited to:

President’s and/or Vice President’s Responsibilities
The president shall preside over all meetings, maintain order during all meetings, notify members
of all upcoming meetings, develop and coordinate meeting agendas with the advisors, and appoint
committee members. Other responsibilities may be added as needed.

Secretary’s Responsibilities
The secretary shall keep minutes, record attendance, prepare agendas for all meetings, and handle
correspondence to members.

Treasurer’s Responsibilities
The treasurer shall provide financial accountability for the student club or organization, prepare
financial status reports each semester, and prepare a summary financial report each semester and
annually for the advisor’s review and approval.

Projects

Community service activities and networking opportunities are part of the club experience.

In 2013-14, a partnership with the NC Bar Association gave real-world experience through the association’s “Lunch and Learn” program.

In 2012-13, the club gathered 163 pounds of food for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina–the equivalent of 137 meals provided to our neighbors in the community. The club also assisted Durham Tech’s Single Parent program, and also provided volunteer mentoring and tutoring at the John Avery Boys and Girls Club of Durham.

In 2011-12, the club sponsored a food drive benefiting the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina’s Durham Branch. Our efforts resulted in 99 pounds of food collected to help feed families in our community, with emphasis on providing support to the Backpack Program, which sends food home with children on weekends.
