It is only fitting that we gather for this historic inaugural Conference on Individual Events as we stand on the doorstep of the 1990's. If intercollegiate Individual Events is to prosper in the decade ahead, it must entrench itself in the changing structure of University decision making. Forensics must exist in the context of an academic institution and so must make itself a valued aspect of that institution. In the 1990's that means survival in an atmosphere of budget cutting, concern for accountability and pleas for a return to basics. As a forensic coach, a teacher and a Department Chair, I believe Individual Events can prosper in the difficult environment of higher education in the 1990's; indeed Individual events may be in an ideal position to do so. What follows are a series of broad propositions for this Conference to consider and a more detailed set of strategies for Individual Events coaches to implement. They are by no means an exhaustive list, nor do they attempt to address issues at the high school or junior college level
