Recruitment Office relocates
The Recruitment Office has moved to the Faubourg Tower, room FB-801, as of yesterday, and the office should be fully functional by tomorrow. They can still be reached at 848-4777.

Laura Stanbra has been appointed Director of Alumni Relations on a contract extending from this September to May 2003. She reports to Tamas Zsolnay, Executive Director of University Advancement and Alumni Relations.

Laura started working at Concordia part-time as a student, in 1985. In the years that followed, she acquired a Bachelor’s in Political Science and a Master’s in Public Policy and Public Administration.

In 1993, she began to work in the Alumni and Advancement areas of the university, gaining considerable experience in organizing events and fundraising, and launching the phone-mail canvassing system. She has spent the past three years as Acting Director of Annual Giving. We wish Laura all the best in her new post.

‘Profetic’ words
A Web site has been established by CREPUQ, the conference of Quebec university rectors, to collect and disseminate information about academic activities at its member institutions.
The organizers invite all teachers and other scholars to explore the site, at http://profetic.org/, make suggestions, and take an active part in this project. The name is from prof and TIC, which is the acronym for technologies de l’information.

CGA exam results
Dean Mohsen Anvari reports with pride that once again the pass rate of Concordia students writing the five exams for the designation CGA (certified general accountant) was a good one — 68 per cent, slightly lower than that of McGill (72 per cent), but higher than HEC (51 per cent) and UQAM (53 per cent). Concordia’s pass rate increased to 68 per cent from 55 per cent over the last three exam periods.

Congratulations to the following students, who distinguished themselves: Louise Pilon, Management Auditing 1, first in Quebec, fourth in Canada; Sylvia McCowan, Management Auditing, third in Quebec, eighth in Canada; Jonathan Krindle, Financial Accounting 4, fifth in Quebec, seventh in Canada; and Kristin Kagerer, Auditing 2, second in Quebec, eighth in Canada.
