Join a Lower Columbia College Advisory Committee and Help Make a Difference!

Professional/Technical Advisory Committee members help plan the training for our future workforce. The advice and perspective of local advisory committee members can help ensure students are learning the most current skills needed to be successful. Bringing employers and educators together on program-specific Advisory Committee provides a format for sharing information and ideas.

Advisory Member Commitment

  • Advisory Committee members meet 2x/year with faculty for about 1 to 1.5 hours
  • Meetings are held according to individual schedules as much as possible to allow for as many participants as are interested
  • Come open-minded, ready to listen and also prepared with ideas, questions and your observations about what is needed to help our students be successful in their chosen career
  • Minimum of 5 board members present to have a complete meeting

Advisory Committee Can Help Us Answer

  • Are students being prepared for the future job market?
  • What should the training include?
  • Is curriculum and equipment training adequately addressing industry needs?
  • Do course and program competencies and performance levels meet industry standards?
  • What industry validated credentials are available within the career pathway?
