The 2021 Rendezvous will feature: 6 preliminary and 2-4 elimination rounds (depending on entries) in three divisions of parliamentary debate and one division of IPDA. PLEASE NOTE: Students will not be able to enter both IPDA and Parliamentary Debate. Should the need arise we reserve the right to collapse divisions in parliamentary debate. In addition, the Rendezvous will feature two preliminary rounds and two elimination rounds in one open division for eleven individual events. Please note that all individual events will follow AFA-NST rules and format. We also offer an open division of British Parliamentary Debate.

This invitation includes a copy of the regulations, a schedule of events, and contact information. A motel list for Powell and Cody is included, and we encourage you to make early reservations.
