The Ambassadors Club welcomes 14 new members

During the Recognition Award Gala marking its 30th anniversary, the Ambassadors Club added 14 new members to its ranks — men and women actively involved in bringing 10 international conventions to Montréal.

These major events will generate nearly $129 M in economic benefits for the city and the province, and attract 40,000 business tourists to Montréal. With the new appointments, the Club now has 287 members, including Appointed Ambassadors, Executive Ambassadors, and Emeritus Ambassadors having secured at least two major events for Montréal.

Since anniversaries are often an opportunity to look ahead, the theme for this year’s Recognition Award Gala was “tomorrow’s leaders.” Dr. Rémi Quirion, Chief Scientist of Québec, therefore seized the event to honour the four Star Student Researchers for February 2015 as selected by the Fonds de recherche du Québec, i.e. Gabriel Éthier-Majcher, Leora Witkowski, Jian Carrot-Zhang and Katarina Mihailovic. The competition makes it possible to recognize the excellent research being conducted by students and to foster research careers with Québec universities.
