The Auditing Roundtable Winter 2010 Meeting, Exposition, and Training

"Incorporating Risk Management into EHSS Auditing"

PHOENIX, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Auditing Roundtable (AR), a professional association dedicated to the practice of Environmental, Health & Safety, and Sustainability (EHSS) Auditing, announces "Incorporating Risk Management into EHSS Auditing" as the theme of their Winter 2010 meeting, to be held January 11-13 in Phoenix, AZ.

Laws, regulations, and standards keep changing, as to business goals, capabilities of IT, communications methods, and stakeholder expectations. EHSS auditors fulfill a critical role in maintaining compliance with EHSS laws, regulations, and standards. This meeting will focus on how EHSS auditors can help identify, evaluate, and help organizations manage risk in uncertain times. Presentations will also focus on risk transfer and management, moving beyond compliance into risk management, auditing risk, and using risk-based approaches to managing audits and conducting auditing programs. Regulations designed to reduce risk (including Homeland Security and Process Safety) and Business Continuity Planning will also be discussed.

We also continue with standard features of our meetings, including industry sector break-outs, topical interest groups, and ample time to mix and mingle with EHSS auditing and management professionals.

The AR is also offering training courses on Basic Auditing Skills, Environmental Auditing, and Health & Safety Auditing. Developed by request of our membership, these courses offer the opportunity to brush up on basics, or to achieve greater proficiency -- perhaps in preparation to take the exam for Certified Professional Environmental Auditor (CPEA) (an exam offered by the Board of Environmental, Health & Safety Auditor Certifications will be on Saturday, January 16, 2010).

In the AR tradition (in our 27th year), many of our presentations are by members -- many who have 20+ years of experience in EHSS auditing. As a result, our meeting fees are modest by comparison to other organizations. We have arranged discounts for members of several affiliated environmental organizations, to help stretch your budget even further.

See for more information on the January 2010 meeting (including a call for papers), regional meetings, webinars, training courses, and collaborations with other professional organizations. The AR's Managing Director, Kathy J. Rieth, is at or 480-659-3738. See for more on CPEA certification, requirements, and benefits.
