The Advisory Group oversees a model of robust member engagement and reports on that engagement to the Board of Trustees. The Advisory Group reviews proposals submitted by the Assemblies, along with other groups that report to it, and passes to the Board those which it believes would meaningfully contribute to CTBUH’s mission. Advisory Group members and the committees in which they participate are largely taken from the Designated Expert pool of CTBUH organizational members.
The Advisory Group is composed of 12 assembly chairs; three regional representatives, taken from chapters, regional/city committees, and regional representatives; eight functional committee chairs; and three discretionary seats, as determined by the Board of Trustees.
