  CHRISTIE WRIGHT, PVR DISTRICT ADVISOR

Christie discussed at the Vala Depreciation Class in White River Junction, check lists for Quality and Condition that were developed by John Westinghouse (another District Advisor).  She has  generously provided these forms for distribution and you can download them for printing by clicking on the links below.  Christie cautions Listers that they need to learn the difference between quality and condition but that they could then be good checklists for those parameters.
