Why should I join?

The international friendship and close personal contact of Skal must be experienced to be appreciated.

“Doing Business Among Friends” Skal is not a community organization; rather it benefits and develops the professional sector, while assisting the community at large. Skal is an association of tourism professionals which encourages and creates a network of professionals around the world. It promotes seminars and conferences to strengthen the industry’s professionalism.

Through participation in local activities and events at all levels, members meet industry colleagues from around the world. Here, in an atmosphere of amicable spirit, ideas, opportunities, and industry matters, in general, may be shared on a personal and business level. Skal members should promote the organization, the formation of new clubs, and recruitment of qualified members.
