Helping Shape Tomorrow's Work Force. A Reference Manual for Occupational Advisory Committees.
Oregon State Advisory Council for Career and Vocational Education, Salem.
This publication provides information and detailed and specific answers to all parties involved in developing successful advisory committees--educators, business, industry, and labor. The first section of the manual discusses types of advisory committees, their authority, and functions. In the second section, establishment of occupational advisory committees is discussed, including preliminary planning, charters, adoption of bylaws, and appointment of members. The third section covers advisory committee operation--meetings, officers, and reporting results of committee recommendations. The fourth section discusses development of a program of work and functions of advisory committees as program of work activities. The final six sections cover local advisory committees as part of state-level programs, obtaining technical assistance, advisory committees as advocates for strong business and labor partnerships with education, state-level program advisory committees, and responsibilities of both state and national advisory councils. Appendixes include sample advisory committee materials (e.g., bylaws, charter, self evaluation form), and a packet of forms developed to be used in the survey process. In addition, a booklet, intended for wide distribution to new members of committees, offers general information. It describes an occupational advisory committee and types of advisory committees and summarizes functions, operation, responsibilities, membership, and cooperation with other agencies. An organizational chart is provided, and participants' roles are described. Recommendations for obtaining information are made. Finally, a packet of transparency masters accompanies the reference manual. These correspond to topics covered and illustrate the definition of an advisory committee; types, functions, and operation of the committee; meetings; reporting the results of committee recommendations; development of a program of work; functions of a committee as program of work activities; cooperation with other agencies; state advisory committee functions; individuals in the advisory process; a technical assistance matrix; and a sample program of work.
