An advisory committee is a group of people, commonly volunteers, who are either internal and/or external to a business or organization, who meet to advise the business or organization on issues. An advisory committee is often long term, has no power to make decisions and generally approaches its advisory role by identifying certain issues, investigating and discussing them, and proposing solutions and recommendations. To be effective, an advisory committee should consist of qualified, knowledgeable members who are intrinsically motivated. They should meet regularly and communicate and uphold clearly communicated expectations. One type of advisory committee is a search advisory committee, which works to find job applicants. It is important for a search advisory committee to safeguard against conscious and unconscious biases as it goes about the hiring process.
