Here's What to Expect In This Episode:
It’s time to get strategic about the key stakeholders around your advisory council table.
In Part 2 of 2 episodes, I cover 5 more people to consider inviting to your committee meeting.
I don’t want you to forget to invite some very specific people who can contribute invaluable insight as you seek value and input for your school counseling program.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to invite the right people to share their opinions about your school counseling services!
If you need convincing of why to be considering an advisory council to even begin with… be sure to go back and listen to Episode 16 where we discussed the benefits that a school counseling advisory council can offer your program.
