The April issue of the Newsletter (vol 27, no 1 - full version) is now available online. This newsletter contains information on our Spring General Meeting, featuring Alan Shepherd - Concordia's President and Vice-Chancellor - as the guest speaker. Our outgoing president has included a retrospective. Our upcoming social calendar is presented. There are reports on pension, on benefits and on our scholarships. Finally, there are some great articles by some of our regular contributors. It is an issue not to be missed!

NEW WEBSITE ADDRESS
New security measures adopted by the University in January of 2016 made it impossible for us to continue to maintain our pensioners website on a Concordia server. The decision has been made to move our website to another server. Please note NEW ADDRESS below:
Please change all your links and shortcuts. The address is very much like the old one, except there is no period between cuparuc and concordia. Please note that there are two 'c' s together, in the middle of this address. The capital letters are optional and are provided only for clarity.
Please note that, until we can place a re-direct page at the old address, you will continue to see a Cuparuc web page there, but it no longer be updated. (If you are unsure which you are looking at, check the date at the bottom of the opening page: It should read Feburary 19, 2016 or later.
- CUPARUC Scholarsips and Awards: A photo of some of this year's award recipients has been placed on the page at the left. There is no longer a specific box to check off to contribute to our award; you must check off "other" and then write in the name of our award in full: Concordia Retired Faculty and Staff Awards Endowment Fund.
