Excellence Through Stewardship representatives Chris Holdgreve, Eric Van Ausdal, and Jon Loeb traveled to Research Triangle Park, NC this week to deliver a seminar to member organization representatives on the ETS Program and Audit Components. More than 20 representatives attended the training and learned about the recent growth of the organization, an overview of stewardship and its benefits and a detailed look at the ETS third party audit process.

The seminar discussed what third party auditors are looking for during the audit process and how internal representatives can help prepare their organization. Attendees participated in sample case study discussions to help understand the unique characteristics of an ETS program audit. During this discussion, attendees were grouped with members of other organizations, allowing them to gain new perspectives on these scenarios and how others prepare for an ETS program audit.

The seminar included the new Insect Resistance Management (IRM) component which outlined the central themes of the ETS effort on IRM, an overview of of the RM Guide and a detailed look at the audit determinations relevant to IRM. As part of the ETS implementation assistance efforts we will be offering additional seminars over the next twelve months.

The ETS team met with representatives of the NC Biotechnology Center and North Carolina State University as part of our continued outreach efforts.
