Our winter Session is our main event of the year. It occurs annually between December 26 and December 31, and takes place inside the Legislature building. At this event, members participate in exciting debates, meaningful discussions, and challenging personal explorations. All resolutions that we debate are written by members, and everyone is able to write and move resolutions.
Anyone between the ages of 15 and 21 may attend Session. The TUXIS Parliament is a spiritual and non- denominational organization, and we welcome members from any and all religions or belief systems. You do not need to have attended any other events, or have any debate experience to attend Session.
What to Expect...
The majority of our Session takes place inside the Legislative chamber. This is where members move resolutions about topics that they feel passionate about, which then get debated. The December Session is also where members debate and vote on bills that impact the operations of the Parliament, such as the budget and procedural changes. We follow the Westminster Parliamentary System, meaning that we have a government and opposition side, with a Speaker to moderate the debate. TUXIS is completely non-partisan and members are encouraged to speak based on how they feel about the topic.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, members will have the opportunity to participate in our debates virtually.
We organize a wide variety of activities for when we are not in the Legislature. Our programs include ice-breakers, debate education, and resolution writing. Our programming for the 101st Session will be conducted virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
