Members can work on their Competent Communication and Competent Leadership manuals at the same time or separately

Leadership manual features 10 Projects, each focused on developing leadership skill, i.e • Listening, Motivation, Delegation, Organisation and Team Building.

Each project requires you to serve in ONE or More meeting or club roles, that will help you to learn and practice that skill

For each leadership role you complete as a project requirement, your club V.P.E will assign an Evaluator


Competent Leadership Evaluations

Written Evaluations required to be completed on all projects

Verbal and Written Evaluations may be given if Club meeting time permits
