Advisory Committees in Vocational-Technical Programs.
Basualdo, Eugenio A.
Designed to assist present and future vocational and technical educators in the establishment and use of advisory committees, the paper clarifies the functions of different types of advisory committees in vocational-technical education, identifies areas in which advisory committees may give guidance, discusses the formation of advisory committees, outlines procedures for conducting productive meetings, and identifies ways to reward committee members. The most frequently used advisory committees in vocational-technical education programs are the general advisory committee and the craft advisory; the joint apprenticeship committee is used less frequently. Some areas in which advisory committees may assist include: student recruitment, selection, and placement; program of instruction; public relations; and teacher assistance. Procedures covered include: selection and appointment of members, length of service, orientation of members, duties of the chairperson and secretary, meeting agenda, minutes of meetings, advisory committee recommendations, and member recognition. A sample advisory committee handbook and agenda and several copies of letters are appended. (EA)
