SGTC Crisp County Center business programs host advisory meeting
South Georgia Technical College’s Crisp County Center Accounting, Business Technology and Marketing Management programs held an joint advisory meeting in the boardroom on the college’s Crisp County campus recently.
Members of SGTC Accounting, Business Technology and Marketing Management advisory committee met with Business Technology instructor Teresa Jolly and Accounting/Marketing instructor Karen Bloodworth. The members reviewed all aspects of the program to keep the program abreast of trends and changes in the accounting and business administrative technology industries.
The purpose of the advisory committee meetings is to provide expert support for the programs. The meetings promote interaction between the program and business and industries served by the program. The faculty uses the expertise of the advisory committee to improve content and operation of the program.
As committee members, individuals may serve as guest speakers in class, help arrange field trips for the program, assist with recruitment, provide on-the-job training for students, provide assistance with job placement for the students, as well as provide other services as the committee sees fit.
Members of the committee present at the advisory meeting were Shearer Turton of Turton Investments; Becky Fitzgibbons with Crisp County Power Commission; Dametra Patterson with Crisp County High School; and Arthur Ben Morris of Plantersfirst;. Also present at the advisory meeting was Julie Partain, Dean of Enrollment Management. Special guests were students that placed in recent Phi Beta Lambda State Competition.
