2023 ARS Consulting Rosarian School Scheduled
The Virtual Consulting Rosarian School, conducted by the American Rose Society, will take place February 4 and 11. A test date for Rosarian candidates will be after. To qualify, you must be an ARS member for 2 consecutive years.
The CR Committee has changed the format to two sessions.
The Consulting Rosarian School is informative to all, even if you do not with to pursue the CR accreditation. I would encourage more of out members to become CRs; it is a great way to share the knowledge and passion for growing roses.
For existing CRs, remember in order to be recertified you must complete four credits every four years, including the mandatory Chemical Safety course.
The required Chemical Safety portion of the school will take place on February 4.
Also a reminder that some rose societies hold programs that earn credits. If you attend a meeting that qualified for CR credit, please let your CR director know about it. This is especially true if you attend a meeting outside the Yankee District.
