The South Georgia Technical College Accounting and Business Technology advisory committee met recently in the Odom Center Conference Room on the SGTC Americus campus.

The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Tech faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the Accounting and Business Technology programs. SGTC Accounting instructor Brenda Boone and SGTC Business Technology instructor Annita Barron provided the committee with updates and information about program changes, enrollment, community activities, and student news.

The advisory committee members provide information to SGTC faculty and staff about suggested improvements in curriculum, new training opportunities that are available in the field of accounting and business technology, new technology, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.

Members present at the advisory meeting were Barbara Hill of Studstill, Haugabook, and Hudgins; Deatrice Harris of the United States Census Bureau; Tabitha Williams of Middle Flint Behavioral Healthcare; and Monica Castaneda of Barnett Computers, LLC. Also present at the advisory meeting was Dr. Andrea Oates, Academic Dean at SGTC.

The advisory committee is a crucial link that provides an avenue for South Georgia Tech instructors to learn about changing conditions or technology in the workplace that can then be passed along to students that will enable them to be fully prepared upon graduation.
