Mercer, John W.; Dillon, Brenda M.
This handbook and leadership guide for members of technical program advisory committees is a product of the Effective Advisory Committees Project conducted by the Minnesota State Board of Technical Colleges and the State Board of Education. The purpose of the project is to increase the effectiveness of the vocational advisory committees in Minnesota's high schools, secondary cooperative centers, and technical colleges. The handbook and leadership guide incorporates into its 6 chapters 50 indicators that the project identified as consistent with the behavior of effective advisory committees. The chapters cover the following: (1) organizing an advisory committee (purpose, structure, practices, and policies); (2) helping the committee members become acquainted; (3) life cycles of committees and members (4) working together as a group (solving problems, making decisions, planning, forecasting trends, and anticipating the future); (5) making meetings work (managing a meeting); and (6) making meetings work (the necessity of a committee workplan). Members of the advisory committee for the project are listed. (KC)
