Business Advisory Council Joint Statement 

2021-22 School Year 

The Apollo Career Center represents all Allen County public schools and is the representative  agency for the Business Advisory Council. 

The Business Advisory Council is composed of two groups: an at-large group and a steering  committee. The at-large group held a meeting on June 15, 2021 and has a meeting scheduled for  June 7, 2022. The steering committee held meetings on August 11, September 29, January 26 and  has a meeting scheduled for April 27, 2022. 

Our plans include: 

1. Creating a resource for school systems which represents business interests and the ability for  businesses to come into schools to speak with students, take on internships, offer job  shadow opportunities, and other items. 

2. We organized a job fair, which is scheduled for May 10, 2022. 

3. We want to continue to promote networking between school and business officials. A  networking session is scheduled for June 9, 2022. 

4. The steering committee will continue to work towards developing effective/beneficial  activities and will continue to consider other initiatives that may be beneficial to the Business  Advisory Council.
