The post-meeting feedback was immediate and unanimous: this was a worthwhile endeavor and ESA should consider repeating this course in the coming years.
On Thursday the 15th, many of the same attendees (and some new ones) participated in an ACE Prep Course. For 8 solid hours participants listened to the experts talk about entomological aspects of pest management and prepared to sit the following morning for the ACE exam. While we're still running numbers on the results, it seems that over 20 new ACEs will be minted as a result of this course. Watch for another post in the days to come with the names of our new ACEs. Our congratulations to all who participated!
