FLAC (Fee Levy Association of Concordia) TABLING FAIR 

Wednesday, September 24th, 11-4pm

Location: 1500, de Maisonneuve W

As part of QPIRG’s disORIENTATION week, come visit our information kiosk at QPIRG’S tabling fair for Fee Levy groups at Concordia. As you may know, the Concordia Greenhouse itself is a fee levy group, and is very dependant on the fee levy in order to be able to provide the space, services, workshops, and events many students and community members enjoy.

However, if you wish to opt out of our funding, next week is your opportunity.

The Concordia Greenhouse fall  2014 refund period is running from September 22-26, 2014. In order to opt-out, please come to our office, 13th floor of the Hall building at 1455 de Maisonneuve West, during our office hours (Mon – Fri 11am – 5pm) with your student ID card and student account record and we’ll provide you with a refund.  Refunds will be provided in cash at the fee levy rate of $0.12 per credit/per semester (for undergrads.)

If you’re interested in learning more about how we benefit as a fee levy group, or want to learn more about other fee levy groups at Concordia, come to the tabling fair!
