CTAE Advisory Committees

An advisory committee is a group of volunteers that meet two to three times a year to provide advice and/or support to the Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) programs. The primary purpose for advisory committees is to promote greater cooperation between the educational environments and the private sector in preparing students for employment, promoting a quality CTAE education, and ensuring that the skills and technology being taught in the classroom are responsive to the needs of the labor market.
