MTC Advisory Committees
Building a Bridge Between Education and the Workforce
At Manatee Technical College, we believe in the power of collaboration between education and industry to shape the future workforce. Our advisory committees play a vital role in ensuring that our career and technical education programs align with the demands of the rapidly evolving job market. Comprising industry experts, educators, and community leaders, these committees provide invaluable insights, guidance, and feedback to enhance curriculum relevance, identify emerging trends, and foster meaningful partnerships. Through active engagement with our advisory committees, we strive to equip our students with the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to succeed in today’s competitive landscape and thrive in their chosen careers.
Every Adult, Career and Technical Education Program within MTC has an Advisory Committee that provides advice and assistance to the instructors and administrators of these programs. Employers and individuals from the local community with expertise in specific career fields and the capacity to employ our students are warmly welcomed to serve on our advisory committees. These dedicated members play a pivotal role in guaranteeing that our programs are finely tuned to meet the ever-evolving demands of local businesses and industries.

How You Can Make a Difference?
As a member of one of MTC’s Advisory Committees, you can have a positive impact on our students, your industry and your own business!
How We Do It?
There is a general meeting of all Advisory Committees twice during the school year,
one in the fall and the second meeting in the spring.
A representative from Main and East Campus is a designated member of the MTC Board of Governors, which meets four times per year.
If you are an employer in a specific technical field, business or industry represented by one of the programs at MTC, we invite you to become a member of the Advisory Committee for that program. CONTACT US!
