New Zealand’s five Skal Clubs have come through the last two years holding membership and are now starting to see numbers increase, says Skal International New Zealand president Sally Attfield.
The fellowship orientated club for travel and tourism professionals held its national AGM and congress in Wellington over the weekend, which also marked the 65th anniversary since the club started in the city.
The highlight of the event was a dinner at the Grand Hall in Parliament.
Vic Wales, HOT Events, Christchurch was named the New Zealand Skalleague of the Year on Saturday night – the first recipient of what is set to become an annual award.
Wales, currently Christchurch Club president, was recognised for the work she does across the industry as well as Skal. She is active in public relations around the club, and organises events such as the popular annual Trivia nights. She has also been active in promoting Young Skal.
