October'20 Message from President-Elect
President-Elect Skål International 2021
My theme for 2021 is 'Passion for Tourism and Professional Pride for Skål'.
As President, I will focus on the priorities of developing Global Partnerships, increasing Skål International’s visibility, modernizing our governance model and providing decisive leadership through Tourism’s economic recovery.
Your 2021 Executive Board will continue working to support the benefits and value of membership in Skål International as well as reviewing other points raised during the AGM/AGA. While we have taken full advantage of digital technology in 2020, including this first-ever Virtual AGM, I am still very much a fan of in-person meetings.
We are a Tourism, Travel and Hospitality Organization dedicated to promoting Travel and Tourism. We have always viewed sharing experiences as well as enjoying our varied cultures as being part of the fabric of Skål International, and we need to do that in person. We may need to adapt to the changes the pandemic has forced upon us and think about how to best adopt technology within our organization, but we must also support our industry in reviving travel so we can get together in person again soon.
Thank you for your confidence and support.
