Local Advisory Committee

Local advisory committees are a vital link between the career and technical education center and business and industry. In addition to state requirements for their establishment, career and technical education administrators and citizens recognize the value of community participation in the discussion of career and technical education issues. The advisory committee assist in assuring the relevance of the career and technical education program, help to create a partnership between the career and technical education program and the community, and increase public awareness of the program. Committee members representing business, industry, labor, public sector, community, postsecondary representatives and the general public bring a unique perspective to education and training programs. They provide knowledge and perspectives, which are invaluable to the career and technical education program.


It must be emphasized that local advisory committee are advisory bodies only. They do not have administrative or governing authority; nevertheless, their work is important to the effective operation of a career and technical education center. Career and technical education programs that have a close association and function in cooperation with an advisory committee are generally more successful than those which do not have such an association.

The local advisory committee provides overall direction for the entire career and technical education center. This committee advises on the whole range of activities and issues involving the career and technical education program, provides advice on appropriate program offerings and support services and, when appropriate, provides assistance and support to the institution.
