Advisory Committee Update ................................................................................................ Julie Chapman
Julie Chapman stated the member list is in need of an update this year. There is a need for a strong
committee before Industry Certification in 2016-2017. She charged each school to add a parent,
student, and at least 4 businesses representative per school.

Industry Certification ............................................................................................................ Jennie Voyles
Jennie Voyles discussed establishing short and long-term goals for the Advisory Committee meeting.
Some of the goals include the committee members serving as guest speakers, mock interviewers, and
judges for FBLA competitive events. In return, the schools can offer businesses help from our students
with their upcoming events. Long-term goals: We want to make sure, when the business leader meets
with the certification committee they can speak to what they have been doing with the school system.
Wes Tallon spoke about what is involved in being a member of the committee: helping with mock
interviews, visiting schools and teachers, and building students up to be stronger members of the
community.
