Following a short introduction, there is a section which briefly discusses the procedures for organizing an advisory council: formulate policy, designate school representative, establish administrative guidelines, select council members, identify desirable characteristics of council members, appoint selection committee, and notify members. The concluding section discusses operational practices necessary for the proper utilization of advisory councils and covers terms of membership, orientation of council members, election of officers, adoption of bylaws, agenda for the first two meetings, role of the school representative, annual program of work, council subcommittees, recognition of members, council recommendations, absenteeism, use of consultants, and council activities. The appendixes include a sample policy statement on establishing advisory councils, administrative guidelines for advisory councils, a sample letter of appointment to a council, sample council bylaws, and a sample program of work for a council.
