COOLNet Tips: Frequently Asked Questions from CCA members

Is it possible to have projects that I am interested in put in a place that would make them easily accessible?

This can be easily done by utilizing the favorites tab under “my projects” on your Dashboard. When you are in a specific project that you are interested in hover over the tools bar at the top left hand side and choose “add favorite”. This action will place the project in your “favorites” tab on your Dashboard so it will be a simple click away after signing into COOLNet.

Join CCA Colleagues on a Moroccan/Portugal Adventure

Join the fun and laughter of the CCA travel group in Morocco with its colourful 3000 year old culture. In addition to mixing with locals in the markets of Marrakech, the camel ride and overnight stay in nomad tents in the serene Sahara desert that the legendary nomads traversed, we will explore cities such as Casablanca with its grand architecture, the ancient cities of Meknes, Fes and others along with UNESCO World Heritage sites. Then there is the fabulous island of Madeira where we will sip on Ponchas with the waters of the Atlantic hitting the shores of this picturesque island. And last but not least, is that of exploring old historic towns of Portugal before heading back to Canada. For more details

Remember that life is short and this may well be your only opportunity to travel with friends, drink wine and enjoy friendships in a Moroccan experience that will last a lifetime.

This exploration is limited to only 24 passengers. ONLY 4 SEATS LEFT 
(SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY)
