How to Become a Consulting Rosarian
If you are already deeply involved with roses - teaching the public about
roses and rose care - writing articles for your local society newsletter
- talking about roses to all your friends and neighbors - or just really
enjoy roses and want to learn more about them -
WHY NOT CONSIDER THE ARS CONSULTING ROSARIAN PROGRAM?
To become a CR, you:
- Must be either a regular, joint or associate member of the American Rose Society
for three consecutive years.
- Must be an active member of a local rose society.
- Must have grown roses of various types for at least five years and
should be knowledgeable in all equipment and materials related to rose
- Must provide three letters of recommendation by any threeConsulting
Rosarians, on the form provided by the District Consulting Rosarian
Chairman (downloadable from the Forms List on the right menu bar).
- Must attend an ARS school/workshop for Consulting Rosarians and complete
an open book examination based on the material contained in the Consulting
Rosarian manual. Once you pass the exam, you do not have to take it again.
- Must know and be willing to live up to the Consulting Rosarian Guide.
- Must be willing to attend no less than one Consulting Rosarian School
in every four-year period or earn four Continuing Education points from accredited
sources (authorized by your District CR Chair).
- Must submit a completed individual annual report form to the District
Chairman of Consulting Rosarians. If no report is submitted in a three-year period, the CR will be dropped from the program. A warning letter will be issued after two years of non-compliance.
- Must submit a Roses in Review Report to the RIR District Coordinator each year.
- Must exhibit a continuing willingness to share knowledge and an enthusiasm
for the rose and the American Rose Society.
How easy can it be??? You are not expected to be a genius, or to know
everything there is to know about roses. That's what the CR Schools and
Seminars are for - they teach us more about the flowers we love. The letters
of recommendation can be from any 3 CRs who know you and have visited
your garden. The open-book exam is easy - and you keep the book to use
as a reference guide to all that stuff you are worried about not knowing.
The real reason we want YOU to become a CR is so we know that you have
access to the latest information (the stuff we teach in the schools) and
you know who to ask when you need to. If you are already doing the CR
job (teaching or writing or talking about roses to everyone) - WHY
NOT BECOME A CR??
