South Georgia Technical College’s Accounting, Business Technology and Marketing Management programs on the Crisp County Center campus recently held an advisory meeting to discuss the state of the program and the industry.

Members of SGTC’s 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 program the committee represents. 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 Becky Fitzgibbons of Crisp County Power Commission; David Wade with City of Cordele;  Mark Lewis with Georgia Department of Labor; Arthur Ben Morris of Planters First; Dametra Patterson of Crisp County High School, and Jessica Carter of Crisp Regional Hospital.  Also present at the advisory meeting was Dr. David Finley, Academic Dean. Special guest speaker was Accounting student, Desiray Kenney.  She shared her accolades as a GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award Leadership) and SOE (Student of Excellence) nominee as well as her involvement in Student Government Association and National Technical Honor Society.
