The Rector's Circle Dinner, an annual expression of gratitude on the part of the university toward its major donors, was held May 16 at the University Club of Montreal.
Members of the Rector's Circle include charter members, who gave $10,000 or more to the Campaign for Concordia in 1983-88, and annual members, who have given $2,000 or more annually to the recent Campaign for a New Millennium or to the university.
Membership has grown steadily. This year, in addition to the 53 individuals and couples who are charter members, there are 185 annual members, bringing total membership to over 200.
