CAHRTM Advisory Committee
Each Career-Technical Education (CTE) program at Lane Community College has an active Advisory Committee. The Culinary Arts & Hotel/Restaurant/Tourism Management Program Advisory Committee has 20-25 members and primarily includes local, industry professionals, our Faculty and Staff, and two to four student representatives (usually our Student Ambassadors and Student Club Officers). There are four meetings, October through June during the academic year.
The Committee is the program's connection to the industry in order to better understand current needs and trends, either nationally or locally. The Committee's industry professionals offer the program: unique guidance to the development of our curriculum; communications and public relations for our program; job opportunities; and general support of our program's goals and events.
Advisory Committee members also participate in choosing our program's Foundation Scholarship recipients, as well as providing industry scholarships, internships, and cooperative education experiences through their businesses. The Advisory Committee is always invited to our Program's events throughout the year such as the Welcome Lunch, End of Term dinners, Alumni Connections events, and the Graduation Breakfast.
We encourage students to get to know an Advisory Committee member at one of our events or attend a meeting during their enrollment in the program!
Note: If you are an industry professional that would like to contribute to the Advisory Committee, please contact Wendy Milbrat for more information!
