LAST Scheduled Webinar?
Tomorrow, July 24th, 2012 is the last scheduled webinar for the development of national cantaloupe guidance. The working group may complete the first draft of sections for "Primary Production" which will provide a document for broader circulation and expert review.
Participants and facilitators on the call will need to discuss - next steps - and how we continue to work on the document to carry preventive practices beyond the production setting and into packing, transportation and other unit operations.
While the work to date is laudable and all participants are to be congratulated (I certainly wish to express my strongest appreciation to the industry members who have worked tirelessly every Tuesday morning for the last 16 weeks on this DRAFT) there is still work to be done.
I (and I am certain the other facilitators) would be very interested in participants thoughts on how we facilitate broader circulation and review of the existing draft, how to facilitate ongoing work to add to the document and how industry can provide extension and education using the work to date.
I hope we have an opportunity to discuss this tomorrow - but will look forward to your comments at any time.
