The Advisory Group oversees and encourages robust member engagement from the assemblies, committees, chapters and regional groups that report to it. The Advisory Group liaises with the Board of Trustees to determine strategic priorities of the Council and then ensures that the work of these groups aligns with the Council’s goals. When new initiatives are proposed, the Advisory Group assesses the proposals and endorses to the Board for resource allocation those which it believes would most meaningfully contribute to CTBUH’s mission. Advisory Group members are chosen for their standing within their industry, their commitment to CTBUH, and to ensure a balanced representation across geographies, demographics and industries.
The Advisory Group comprises assembly and committee chairs, along with leadership from CTBUH’s regional and chapter networks.
