Advisory Council

The CIBS Advisory Council was created in 1990 as the successor to the CIBS Board of Advisors, which had been created in 1986. The Council has external TAMU members, including local, state and national business executives, community college administrators and public sector officials and other professionals. The membership brings a considerable measure of diversity that is integral to help CIBS carry out a wide variety of CIBER activities.

The full Council meets annually at Texas A&M University to plan, evaluate and advise on CIBER activities. The wide span of experience that the Council membership includes provides a valuable source of counsel to the Center in planning and organizing its activities. Numerous council members are also financial donors to CIBS, donating funds for study abroad scholarships and to support the Center’s operations. Members serve as visiting classroom lecturers, and use their contacts in the business world and government to bring distinguished speakers to campus.
