Greetings colleagues,

The National Federation for High School Associations is conducting is
annual topic selection meeting at the Hyatt Deerfield in suburban Chicago
this weekend.  This year Bill Batterman and I are your representatives for
the NDCA. The goal is to come up with a slate of five topics to be voted
on (which are then narrowed down to two) by the community during the year.

Today the wording committee is vetting each topic area and wording of
potential resolutions. Stephan has created a blog at
http://www.planetdebate.com/blogs/view/1021. As the resolutions are
narrowed down/modified we will try to keep you updated on the progress of
the meeting.

The resolutions (remember they are a work in progress and considering them
as topic areas might be a better approach) are below. PLEASE email me at
timmonsa at greenhill.org AND timmonsa at meangreenworkshops.com (Greenhill
email seems to be down at the moment but should be working soon), today
with concerns/ways to improve the wording of the topics and I will make
sure your input is included.
