From Our Training Coordinator

By Debra Mayes

July 2, 2015

A few weeks ago I conducted a site visit for an upcoming OCCD Quarterly on a Viking River Cruise Ship. It could work! The lounge was large enough for meeting space and the dining room would serve for a separate location for meals…. OCCD Members like tours….there was a tour every morning…talk about historical buildings – design and architecture! 

The Danube Waltz                                              

Passau, Germany, Salzburg-Linz-Melk-Durnstein-                                              

Vienna Austria, Bratislava, Slovakia, Budapest,


This building was in Bratislava, – hundreds of years old and soon to be renovated. Open up the pic and take a really close look. Who among you wouldn’t love to hear about renovating this????

I only conduct site visits. Site selection is chosen by the OCCD Board of Directors…. I’m thinking OCCD Summer Annual 2018!!
