International Trade Technical Advisory Committee

"Technical Advisory Committees help improve programs that prepare students to enter and succeed in the workplace.  Members, who represent business and labor, have expertise in the skills and competencies needed for specific occupations."

"Committee activities focus on reviewing programs, providing recommendations and assisting students and instructors.  Because committee members have extensive knowledge of the area they advise, their role is highly valued by instructors and administrators.  Committees are goal-oriented.  They support constructive and necessary change within a program.  Advisory committees also generate new ideas and serve as advocates for quality technical education."
