Planning Documents:
April 17, 2008: Sent email to Father Jomanas with preliminary questions.

April 15, 2008: Blaine met with Shauna Marshall
1. She doesn't really have much money, but I'm sure if we came to her with something concrete (e.g. we'd like to have a brown bag lunch with the students hosted by the Academic Dean's office she'd be into it).
2. She suggested we solicit faculty funds more formally like GAAP.
3. She also mentioned that ASUCH tacks on a $5 student activity fee for an Abascal fund, perhaps we could get them to do that for HHP as well?
4. Also, she mentioned coming with us on the trip in the near future, which would be AMAZING! What an honor to have a Dean amongst us.

April 15, 2008: Asha, Blaine and Morgan met with Professor Joel Paul.
1. He will put us on his budget for the fall and hopefully be able to contribute to the conference funds.
2. He can guarantee us a 50% tuition scholarship for an LLM student "into perpetuity." However, we obviously have a lot of money to raise still. He's going to check with one of his major donors who might be interested.

April 7, 2008: Karen, Richard, Asha, Allison, Blaine, Kaitlin and Teddy met with Dean Newton:
1. She has no money for us because of budget cuts.
2. It was good we met with her because she now has more info about us and will hopefully sell us to funders.
