Wayne Kraemer asked me to circulate this amongst the policy folk. Details below.

Call for Hosts:  2015 CIDD British Tour of the US
 
The Committee for International Discussion and Debate (CIDD) of the National Communication Association is pleased to announce the Fall 2015 British National Debating Team Tour.  As we begin NCAís second century, we encourage you to consider supporting this international debate tour with a long and rich tradition.  We are currently seeking US colleges, universities, and community organizations to host the two debaters selected by the United Kingdomís English Speaking Union.
 
Approximate Tour Dates: September 27, 2015 to November 18, 2015
 
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 provide, at minimum, suitable lodging, meals, and local transportation.
Deadline:  Applications are due by Monday, June 22, 2015.
 
How to Bid:  To place a bid to host the team, please enter all information into our online submission form:
 
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.  Note that host institutions will be asked to sign a hosting contract before bids are confirmed.  The CIDD Program Coordinator or Chair will notify hosts about the status of their bid via email.
 
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 ďInternational Week,Ē alumni events, or symposiums.
 
-Featured the British debaters in guest lectures, presentations, or question and answer periods with classes on debate, rhetoric, or British culture.
 
-Taken their guest to major (or minor) attractions of cultural or historical significance.
 
-Sought opportunities for visiting debaters to interact with students, alumni, and local dignitaries.
 
-Tour participants are usually interested in opportunities to do coaching sessions with high school or college students.  The British Team is particularly interested in working with Urban Debate Leagues.
 
Before the tour commences, we will provide an informational hosting packet with a hosting contract, 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 (in other words, close enough that movement from school to school can be done by ground transportation at the host schoolís expense) coordinating schools or organizations may be eligible for a discounted hosting fee.  We offer $100 discounts 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 Wayne Kraemer for more information.
 
Inquiries about the tour should be directed to Wayne Kraemer, CIDD Chair at wk02@txstate.edu
