The Committee for International Discussion and Debate (CIDD) of the National Communication Association is pleased to announce the Fall 2014 British National Debating Team tour. As we celebrate NCA’s centennial, we encourage you to consider supporting an international debate tour with a long and rich tradition. We are currently seeking US colleges, universities, and community organizations to host two debaters selected by the United Kingdom’s English Speaking Union. Approximate Touring Dates: late September to November 20th

Fees:
Hosting fees support travel and coordination costs incurred by the tour. The hosting fee for a single school or organization is $800.00. Two or more coordinating schools in close geographical vicinity may qualify for a discount (see volume discounts below).Hosts must also provide, at minimum, lodging, meals, and local transportation.

Deadline: Applications are due by Sunday, June 15th

How to Bid:
To place a bid to host the team, please enter all information into our online submission form available at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1cWS91wniA9o8XZf3plFJF5U6QyS64J-ksE_8AFv-42Q/viewform

Please consider conflicts with university holidays and other major events on your campus before placing your bid.


Hosts will be notified about the status of their bid via email by the CIDD Program Coordinator.

Suggestions for Prospective Hosts

It is expected that all hosts will hold at least one public exhibition debate. Previous hosts have:

  • Hosted the debate in conjunction with a major campus or community event, such as “International Week,” alumni event, or symposium.
  • Featured the British debaters in guest lectures, presentations, or question and answer periods with classes on debate, rhetoric, or British culture.
  • Taken their guests to major (or minor) attractions of cultural or historical significance.
  • Sought opportunities for visiting debaters to interact with students, alumni, and local dignitaries.
  • This year’s tour participants are particularly interested in opportunities to do coaching sessions with middle and high school students.

Before the tour commences, we will provide an informational hosting packet with debater bios, possible debate topics, and other details. We will ask hosts to provide a projected itinerary (so we can help other hosts schedule time for breaks, laundry, and other essential needs) and copies of promotional materials. Hosts will also be expected to provide feedback about event attendance and academic/programmatic impact to CIDD at the conclusion of the visit.

Volume Discounts

Multiple tour stops in adjacent communities reduce overall travel costs and allow hosts to economize through collaboration. If there are other potential hosts in close geographic proximity (close enough that movement from school to school can be done by ground  transportation at the host school’s expense), coordinating schools or organizations may be eligible for a discounted hosting fee. We offer a $100 discount for two coordinating schools and a $200 discount for three or more coordinating schools in a geographic area.  In order to qualify for the discounted fee, ground transportation between coordinating schools must be provided. For example, if Northwestern, Loyola-Chicago, and Roosevelt University in Chicago bid to host in succession, each school would submit an application and pay a $600 hosting fee. If you are interested in a volume discount, please contact Sarah Green for more information.

Inquiries about the tour should be directed to Sarah Green, CIDD Program Coordinator

(nca.cidd@gmail.com) or Dr. Carly Woods, CIDD chairperson (cwoods3@unl.edu)
