Bylaw IX. Section 14. Rewrite Subpoint A as follows:
“Participant fee. Each person attending the CEDA national tournament will
pay a fee (determined by the host and the President). The fee should go
directly to the host institution to underwrite the costs associated with
hosting the tournament.”




The current host fee is regressive. We charge each school
$40 regardless of the number of people attending. A per person fee is more
appropriate. A per person fee is consistent with every other major national
tournament. A per person fee enables hosts to negotiate and provide meals
(breakfast, lunch and/or dinner) for the tournament. The exact amount of the
fee should not be set constitutionally since each host has different expenses.
Each bid can identify the approximate amount of the fee and the item(s) they
will provide.
