Occupational/Craft Committees: Guidelines for Organizing and Maintaining. Vocational-Technical Education.
Maryland State Council on Vocational-Technical Education, Annapolis.
This guide is designed to assist school systems in developing and/or using occupational/craft committees in support of public school vocational-technical education programs in Maryland. The guide is organized in two parts. Part I outlines the steps needed to organize an occupational/craft committee: rationale and benefits, functions, steps in organizing, statement of purposes, statement of organizational procedures, and notification of appointment. Part II describes the process of maintaining an existing occupational/craft committee: planning the annual program of work, planning and conducting meetings, agenda format, and the functions of an occupational/craft committee (community surveys, course content advising, student placement, community public relations, equipment and facilities, program staffing, program review, and community resources). The material in the guide was developed from information provided in two publications of the National Center for Research in Vocational Education, published by the American Association for Vocational Instructional Materials: Module A-4, "Organize an Occupational Advisory Committee" and Module A-5, "Maintain an Occupational Advisory Committee."
