Technical Counselers are chapter members who have volunteered their services to advise fellow member builders. The tech counselors are builders themselves who have "been there and done that." They can assist in getting over hurdles, give advice on building techniques, or can just be another pair of eyes to catch errors or mistakes. Builders are strongly encouraged to take advantage of their experience.
