In April 1973, the Native Courtworkers and Counselling Association of British Columbia held t he first evaluation since its founding in October 1973. The two major objectives of the evaluation were (a) t o provide the Association with a detailed overview of the work of the courtworkers, the head office and the Board of Directors; (b) and to provide information for use in future planning of the Association. The information provided by the evaluation team included such things as statistics concerning the activities of the Association and first hand accounts of the functions of the Association in the field and at the head office. Although the evaluation team was unable to obtain as much data as it would have liked, it did gather a great deal of information that will be useful to the Association in setting future policies and guidelines. In general, the information compiled indicates that the Association has done a good job and has greatly helped the Native community. Despite the many obstacles the Association had to face, it has come a very long way in a very short period of time . Occasionally the evaluation constructively criticizes certain aspects of the Association but it never strays from a basic stance of support for the work of the Association and its members.
