2-Week Advanced Parliamentary Program

The 2-Week Advanced Parliamentary Program provides an opportunity for students who have previously attended an SNFI Parliamentary camp to join into the second week of the 3-Week Parliamentary Program.  Students in this program will skip over the first week's introductory base materials and will pick up directly with the advanced seminar curriculum and in depth practice debates geared for more advanced and serious Parliamentary debaters.  This program is offered based on the feedback of prior attendees looking to return for the in depth topic strategy and analysis offered in the second week of the 3-Week program without duplicating the first week.

Note: only alumni of previous SNFI Parliamentary session are eligible to enroll in this session.
