CCA's 100th Annual Conference
March 12 - 15, 2018
Banff, AB 

2018 also brings the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Construction Association to Banff this March. I was lucky enough to attend the Canadian Construction Association Conference last year in Mexico, which is generally held abroad and only comes back to Canada every 5 years. This is a highly attended event with participants from all over Canada. We are in a unique situation where the event is being held in our back door this year, and the Calgary Construction Association is going to be well represented by our members this year! It will be a great opportunity to for all attendees to talk about how great the Calgary Construction Association is. Make sure you tell everyone just how we do it in Calgary!  -Chris Bardell, CCA Chair

COOLNet Alberta Tip!

How can I have projects sent to me using specific keywords that I have chosen?

There is a useful tool within COOLNet called “opportunity matching” that allows you to choose up to 10 keywords relating to your business. These keywords are chosen by you and will be used by the system to pull all the projects that relate to those keywords. Each morning those pulled projects will be emailed to you directly to save you time by doing the searching for you.

To utilize this feature go to: My Account-->Edit Opportunity Matching -->Add up to 10 customized Keywords using the “enter keyword” box and the “add keyword” button. Do not forget to SAVE!
