Minutes for Wednesday February 4, 2009

New Meeting Time: Every other Monday at 4pm. Don't panic. If you can't make the meeting times; we will always send out the minutes so that you can see what you missed and can keep up with the activities that we're offering.

Valentine's Day Fund Raiser: On the 11th and the 12th we will be holding a Bake Sale/ fundraiser on the SSB building by Starbucks and hopefully in the Student Union as well. The club sweat shirts will be for sale there as well ($35 for members and faculty $40 for everyone else). If you are avalible the nights before to bake please send us an email saying what you'd like to commit to bringing. We also need indiviudals who are willing to help run the table. If you are avaliable anytime between noon and 4pm on those days please let us know and we'd be glad to plug you into a time slot.

Moose's Tooth Party: We're having are Cabin Fever Social/Party at Mooses's Tooth on Sunday February 15th around 8pm. you can show up sooner. You must be a Justice Club member or a faculty member in order to have the club pay for pizza. Per UAA policy we can only pay for two beers for students who are old enough and plan to drink. We ask that you please remain respectful of the club and who we represent and not exceed this limit unless you are paying for it and you have a ride home of your own.

Other activities: We have had requests for a lot of fun activities and tours. Keep checking your inboxes to be updated for up and coming events. If you have any activities that you would like to do with the Justice Club please let us know. There will be a bowling night this spring and some members are trying to get a skiing party together.

ACJS Conference: If you'd like to go to the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences Conference please contact a Justice Club officer. It will be in Boston MA this year from March 10th-14th. To register for the conference you must be an ACJS member. Simply go to their website and pay the $30 enrollment fee. The deadlines for travel grants are past. If you plan on going you'll have to ind your own sponsors and pay for you own trip. The Justice Club is planning to help with fund raising such as bake sales and Sweatshirt sales.

New Treasurer: We'd like to welcome Eva Gomez to the infamously named Justice League. She is detail oriented and very driven. I look forward to working with her. She is a great leader and many of you already know her from class.

That's all we have for now. We'll keep you posted as each thing comes up. We are working on updating our website.

Have a great week see you all in class!
