Birthe & Charlotte Maceska from Tjek-in Travel, after the successful organisation of the 15th anniversary, will also take care of the 25th anniversary celebrations.

  1. We will hold our AGA

next month on 27.2.2019 at 11:00 in the PCC. As every time I urge you to come in great number because we need at least 25% of the members to be present to make it a valid election. It must be in your interest anyway.

 

  1. Special events 2020

Our suggetsions are -

Bowling eve was successful, especial with the YS members.

Wine tasting in Prague

Trip to a vineyard in Austria

etc

 

  1. Young Skål

We face the usual situation as every year. Some are, for one reason or another, leaving and replaced by new ones.

Jirko presents one YS interested candidate from the VŠO and I propose our offices assistant for YS membership.

 

  1. PR / Photos

It is absolute essential to present the club on each and every occassion to the media and social networks.

Therefore we have to provide professional photos and reports from all functions, regular or special ones, held in order to ensure awareness by the public, exisiting and potential members.

 

 

  1. What´s the advantages to be a Skål member

This question is coming up again and again.

We at the board came together to the conclusion that we all had advantages from membership in the club.

Some by meeting old friends. Some through personal contacts and exchange of information and ideas. Others by using the international Skål network and contacts.

The new team in Torremolinos tries really very hard to get Skål Int. into the next century. We should support them wherever we can. After all, the are OUR EMPLOYEES !

That is why we need to explain to our and possible new members to use the services provided by Skål Int. for their own benefits.

That´s why we pay a membership fee to Torremolinos.

  1. Guest speaker / presentations
