Pacific Northwest Debate is not restricted to the PNW region. Any recognized debate program from any 2 or 4-year college or university is eligible for membership. There is currently no annual dues required for members.
Core membership programs are committed to the growth and development of PNW debate and participate in submitting topic papers, voting for topics, and constructing the bulk of the article packets.
Affiliate membership programs are interested in trying PNW debate or may only attend events on an ad hoc basis. Affiliate members do have opportunities to contribute to the article packet, but on a more limited basis than core members.
How to Join
Program directors interested in joining should contact Western.Washington.Debate@gmail.com. Upon joining, directors will be connected to the organization's Dropbox and Slack platforms and added to the list of members on the website.
