BOCES staff, others sought to participate
Hundreds of representatives of business, industry and secondary and higher education serve on the Capital Region Career & Technical School's Business & Education Partnership Advisory Committees and work closely with faculty and staff. These professionals and educators advise Career & Tech about employment needs and trends, help keep course offerings current and aid in the development of new programs.
Advisory Committee members also provide Career & Tech students and alumni with valuable opportunities for job exploration, shadowing, internship, apprenticeship and part- and full-time employment.
While many Career & Tech faculty and staff speak with business and education partners throughout the school year, an annual meeting and dinner each fall brings together a number of the committees for valuable information sharing and networking. This year's meeting is set for Nov. 14 at the Albany campus.
In advance of that meeting, BOCES staff who would like to become involved in the Business & Education Partnership Advisory Committees or have suggestions regarding potential members may contact work-based learning coordinators Jim Haas or Marc Peimer.
