Chambers of Commerce and Career Education. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph, summarizing the ideas of participants attending a two-day mini-conference, was developed to help educators better understand some of the problems to be overcome in gaining support from their local chamber of commerce for career education. This booklet first presents the educator with five facts of life regarding the goals, structure, and operations of a local chamber of commerce. This is followed by examples of ways in which particular local chambers of commerce have been actively engaged in community career education efforts. Focus of these examples is on helping teachers gain experience in industry, coordinating the collaborative efforts of schools and business/labor/industry, and communicating the career education concept to the community. Finally, this monograph concludes with suggestions of ways to get greater chamber of commerce involvement in career education. A list of participants and issues they raised is appended. (EM)
