Forum

This branch is a great starting place for freshmen and first year Youth and Government participants who may not be as comfortable with parliamentary procedure and formal bill writing. Students in forum will debate one highly controversial topic over the course of the conference with the ultimate intent of co-writing one comprehensive bill to be presented the last day of conference. Forum is run by two co-chairs who will ask students questions while also driving the debate in an unbiased way. Before the conference, Forum delegates will be required to submit a pro/con position paper with cited credible sources.
