IEEE.CA E-mail Alias Service Termination
The IEEE.CA E-mail Alias Service will be terminated by the end of this month, i.e. July 31, 2001. In other words, our IEEE.CA e-mail ids will no longer be supported after that date. As an alternative, we can use the IEEE.ORG e-mail ids. You can go to the web site http://www.ieee.org/web/accounts/ and sign up for your IEEE.ORG e-mail id if you had not already.
IEEE Global Travel Services Announcement
IEEE Travel has negotiated for IEEE Members discounts as high as 14% off the lowest available super-saver and coach fares on United Airlines. This discount also applies to Lufthansa and SAS flights and to certain Air Canada and British Midland flights. The previous discount was 12 percent and did not include Air Canada or British Midland flights. The new discount applies to Air Canada flights that are code-shared with United. One example are some Air Canada flights to and from the U.S. The discount does not apply to Air Canada flights within Canada.
For more information, call Global Travel Services, at 1 800 TRY IEEE. The discounts are included in the fares on the IEEE Travel Website http://www.ieeetravelonline.org/.
