As Debating Matters continues to expand, alumni help in organising, chairing and judging at events becomes invaluable. As an alumnus of the competition, you could help to ensure the smooth-running of the Qualifying Rounds by helping out on the day, either generally by helping to set-up and run the event, or as a chair or judge.

If you’re a past Debating Matters participant and would like to join the alumni network, please email Bernie Whelan. Sign up to the Debating Matters Facebook fan page for all the latest updates and follow us on Twitter.
