Hi Debbie,
Who do you need?  I thought I had sent you some email addresses already.
LaToya Snead ([log in to unmask]), our secretary, handled all the forms for travel
and honorarium payment.  Victor Tey ([log in to unmask]) in the Travel Office
helped individual Fellows make travel arrangements.  Karen Billet
([log in to unmask]) worked with the hotel to decide on menus, rooms, etc.

To thank the tech people, write a note care of Bill Tally ([log in to unmask])
who has these addresses.  It would be good for him to know how much you
appreciated these folks since he's the one who hired them.

Hope this helps.  Sorry if my first response to your request went awry.
Judy
