Lewis-Clark State Colleges Technical Advisory Boards will meet on Monday, February 12 to discuss issues, meet new members, and visit with veteran members. Over 250 guestsboard members, invited guests and LCSC staff are expected to attend the event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Williams Conference Center on the LC campus. Those present will represent 24 different technical programs offered at the college.
The Division of Technical and Sponsored Programs utilizes advisory boards to gather recommendations regarding courses and subject matter. The boards are comprised of community and business representatives from throughout the region, and span a complete range of professions and life occupations. The boards meet three to four times a year. Recommendations for board members come from LCSC faculty and are submitted to the college president, who extends the invitation to sit on a given board.
Dr. Ray Sanders, Associate Vice President for Technical and Sponsored Programs, described the boards purpose: "Lewis-Clark State College seeks to serve the public through a myriad of professional-technical programs. Accordingly, the college needs to know what the community wants and needs in terms of those services. Likewise, the community needs to be aware of what the college is offering. The advisory boards are the common link."
In addition to introductions of board members, Dr. Mike Rush, Administrator, Idaho Division of Professional-Technical Education, will speak on the status and outlook for professional-technical education in Idaho. Dr. Sanders will reconfirm the role and purpose of the boards, after which they will meet individually to consider topics specific to their interest areas.
