Pathways – when is a speech evaluation *not* required?

Yes, it is true…
The club/VP Ed has some leeway here…

In traditional education program, the TI manuals and FAQ are clear:
From the FAQ:
Can I give speeches outside of my club for credit?
Yes. You are allowed to do up to two speeches per manual outside of the club environment for credit toward an educational award, as long as you receive prior approval from your vice president education. You must receive a written and oral evaluation from a Toastmaster, although the Toastmaster does not need to be in the same club as you.

But, according to Pathways Guide training …
….An evaluation can be skipped if that is deemed appropriate by the club and club leadership.

This is an answer a question about “external training” done outside the home club…
And it seems the VP Ed can approve a Pathways level as done if a project has a reason why no evaluation could be done.

So that is new!
