Karen Taillon
Office Manager

As a graduate of Concordia University, I was pleased to return in 1994 as the Association’s Office Manager. I am very happy to be here at CUPFA as part of the CUPFA family. I am responsible for the front-line services offered to all members who call and to assist part-time faculty maneuver through the sometimes murky waters of Concordia. If I don’t have the answer to your question, I can certainly steer you in the right direction.

Diane Pitre
Office Assistant

I am pleased to be part of CUPFA’s staff and to assist members who reach me. My primary tasks involve the entry of data for PT contracts received, and the office duties associated with materials sent or mailed to the membership. As Girl Friday, I assist our Office Manager with a number of other office responsibilities and assist our Executive with requests for special events organised by CUPFA such as Campus Equity Week, Orientation and training sessions, etc. I currently take care of the office reception area on Thursdays and Fridays and welcome members who drop by to see me.
