Business Advisory Board

Connections with business and industry are extremely crucial to the success of our program and services. We rely on representatives from many companies to provide financial support, arrange volunteer support, offer employment opportunities, and supply certification advice/credibility, management expertise and much more. Without the support of many companies, our organization would not be as strong as it is currently.
