VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEES GUIDANCE FOR OUR FUTURE.
HOERNER, JAMES L.; RIENDEAU, ALBERT J.
LOCAL ADVISORY COMMITTEES (1) ASSIST THE COLLEGE IN ORGANIZING ITS VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM, (2) ADVISE ON MATERIAL PROCUREMENT, (3) ACQUAINT THE COLLEGE WITH CURRENT INDUSTRIAL PRACTICES AND DEVELOPMENTS, AND (4) HELP TO COORDINATE PROGRAMS TO MEET COMMUNITY NEEDS. SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS MAY BE IN THE AREAS OF (1) STUDENT SELECTION CRITERIA, (2) INSTRUCTOR GUIDANCE, (3) MORAL SUPPORT, (4) PUBLIC RELATIONS, AND (5) TEACHER RECRUITMENT. COMMITTEE MEMBERS SHOULD BE CHARACTERIZED BY EXPERIENCE, ADEQUATE TIME, AND CHARACTER. SINCE THE NATURE OF PROBLEMS MAY VARY AMONG COLLEGES, THE OPERATION OF ADVISORY COMMITTEES MAY ALSO BE EXPECTED TO VARY. THE COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVE, WHO FUNCTIONS AS AN EX OFFICIO MEMBER, IS USUALLY THE DEAN OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION. HIS DUTIES OFTEN INVOLVE COMMITTEE COMMUNICATIONS, REPORTS, ARRANGEMENTS FOR FACILITIES, AND CLERICAL ASSISTANCE. MEMBERS ARE APPOINTED FOR DEFINITE PERIODS, USUALLY WITH STAGGERED TERMS AND REPLACEMENT. ADVISORY COMMITTEES PROVIDE A VITAL INTERCHANGE OF INFORMATION BETWEEN THE COLLEGE AND ITS COMMUNITY. (HH)
