General CX/LD/PFD Preferences:
Professionalism and civility are required and weigh heavily in
As far as speed is concerned, flowing it OK, but speakers must
not overrun the comprehension rate of their audience. Slow
delivery is preferred to the sip from the firehose.
I most want to see in a debate round a few, well developed,
substantive arguments, pros and cons. Keep criticism to a
reasonable minimum, provide reasons. Ad hominem attacks
are not appreciated.
Empirical examples are as important, if not more important, than
reading "unique", esoteric cards.
I'm a beginner (n00b) judge, so please adapt accordingly. Also,
English as a second language.
Structure and content are essential. There should be a clear
intro with statement of position on resolution and preview of
main points. Main points should be supported by the type of
evidence you would expect a member of Congress to rely upon for
a speech before the House/Senate. Responses to fellow members
and a discussion of how the legislation would impact one's
"constituents" are part of the "debate" aspect of this event.
Walking transitions between points and when answering questions
Parliamentary Procedure and Presiding Office (PO) duties:
Efficiency, use of proper voting procedures and correct motions
to move along debate are an obligation of ALL members of the
chamber and should not have to be repeatedly prompted by the PO.
The PO's primary duties are to keep speech time and recognize
speakers/questioners based on a strict, impartial adherence to
precedence/recency. Do not run for PO if you do not feel
prepared to execute these duties. Serving as PO is never a
guarantee of breaking; a PO's performance is weighed against the
PO expectations outlined above.
