Georgia Chapter Offers River Cruise in 2020



One of the intangible benefits of belonging to the Georgia Chapter is the opportunity to connect with old friends and classmates. This is particularly true of our annual meeting which has gained national recognition for the quality of its educational offerings, large attendance and financial success. Now I am pleased to announce one more extraordinary opportunity to join your friends and associates on a truly remarkable cruise on the beautiful Danube, preceded by a day in Budapest, appropriately named the “Paris of the East”. Scenic Cruiseline is luxury with a capital “L”. Everything is included in the pricing, including balcony suites with a sun lounge, butler service, five dining options, all food and beverages, gratuities, laundry services, daily tours, local guides and entertainment and much more. One price per person covers it all. Our Executive Director Hank Holderfield has worked with Custom Travel-Cruise for many years with other groups and gives them an A+ rating in quality, customer service and attention to detail.

And, we will offer CME***, some in Budapest and other presentations throughout the cruise. Don’t worry, these courses will be covered early so there will be plenty of time for the daily onshore experiences that are all included in the cost.

Following are the details. If you have questions, please contact Linda Kinsey with Custom Travel-Cruise at 770.949.1133 or by email:

This is going to be a trip of a lifetime. Please join us!
