This publication offers guidelines for establishing and operating advisory committees for career education, elementary grades through community college. Each of the four chapters included in this guide contains key concepts and step-by-step checklists. Focusing on the functions of the advisory committee, chapter 1 discusses the following topics: reasons for establishing an advisory group; role of advisory council for total school programs; role of advisory committee for individual career programs; roles of supportive school personnel; and defining what type of group is needed. Chapter 2 focuses on the organization of advisory committees and discusses their functions with school administration; obtaining support for an advisory committee; developing a working membership; and establishing advisory committees. Chapter 3 presents important information related to advisory committee meetings and includes such topics as elements of a good meeting; how many meetings are necessary; planning the agenda; and evaluation and follow-up. Some of the topics discussed in the final chapter on maintenance are orientation of members; long-range planning; outside assignments; recognition; and revitalizing old committees and/or ineffective ones. Several related materials are appended, such as an organization checklist, roles and responsibilities of committee officers and members, a sample constitution of an advisory committee for career education, sample agendas, evaluation forms, and a sample letter of appreciation.
