After the AIA State Speech and Debate Advisory Committee meeting yesterday, the first version of the 2012-2013 calendar is out. The largest change from previous years is the separation of the NFL District Congress Qualifier from the rest of the tournament. With the new constraints on Congressional Debate judging, as well as rules about the length of sessions, it was decided that holding the Congress separately would provide for a better Congressional Debate tournament, as well as allow for more flexibility in the rest of the Qualifying events.
The calendar can be found here: 12-13 Tournament Calendar v1.
