IN A COMPLEX AND CHANGING INDUSTRIAL WORLD, ADVISORY COMMITTEES ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE PLANNING AND OPERATION OF SOUND VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS. THREE TYPES OF ADVISORY COMMITTEES ARE (1) A GENERAL COMMITTEE, TO REVIEW THE TOTAL OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAM AND TO ADVISE ON NEEDS AND PRIORITIES, (2) OCCUPATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEES, WHICH ADVISE THE COLLEGE STAFF ABOUT INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS IN SPECIFIC TRADES, CRAFTS, AND OCCUPATIONS, AND (3) THE JOINT APPRENTICESHIP COMMITTEE, SERVING IN AN ADVISORY CAPACITY BUT ALSO HAVING AN ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTION REGARDING APPRENTICESHIP STANDARDS AND SUPERVISION OF ON THE JOB TRAINING AND WORK EXPERIENCE. ADVISORY COMMITTEES PROVIDE EXPERTISE IN MATTERS OF EQUIPMENT, FACILITIES, AND CURRICULUM CONTENT. THEY ASSIST IN OBTAINING PUBLIC SUPPORT, RAISING SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS, RECRUITING INSTRUCTORS, ARRANGING FIELD TRIPS, PROVIDING SPEAKERS, PLACING GRADUATES, PROMOTING INDUSTRY COOPERATION, AND IMPROVING COLLEGE-COMMUNITY LIAISON. MEMBERS SHOULD HAVE COMPETENCE, INTEREST, CHARACTER, AND TIME. THE COLLEGE SHOULD MAKE MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF THEIR SERVICES, AND APPROPRIATE RECOGNITION OF THEIR EFFORTS IS ESSENTIAL.
