  • read the notes on evaluation and the Competent Leader Award
At the meeting:
  • ensure you receive CL manuals from each presenter and identify the assignment being done. Discuss this with the presenter/s as time allows.
  • advise the General Evaluator who you are evaluating. This is done to avoid duplication.
