[eDebate] 2007-2008 CEDA Topic Selection Open Meetings
Tue Nov 7 16:01:16 CST 2006
I would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone of a couple of
upcoming opportunities to discuss potential topics for 2007-2008 and the
topic process. I will be hosting or attending the following public
meetings. I encourage any student, coach, or interested party to attend.
The goal of all of these sessions is to raise awareness about the
current topic efforts underway and to gain insight into potential new
directions for topic proposals.
If you cannot make either of these sessions, please contact me directly.
I am also posting this information, as with all topic related
information, to the CEDA topic website www.cedatopic.com
<http://www.cedatopic.com/> At this site you can currently view the list
of topic proposals being investigated as well as learn about the process.
