SKAL eyes more members

Boosting membership numbers around the country is the key objective of SKAL New Zealand in the year ahead, says national president Leighton Cameron. The organisation held its annual general meeting, cocktail function and dinner at The Langham Auckland to coincide with the Auckland Club’s 50th anniversary over the weekend. Cameron says that with the exception of Christchurch, most clubs around the country have shown a lack of growth in recent times. ‘We intend to turn that around. We have 240 members throughout the country and that’s not many when you think tourism and travel are going so well right now.’ On the positive news front, the Nelson – Marlborough region now has a ‘fledgling SKAL club’, which is likely to become established this year. Cameron says one message the club is keen to keep promoting is its network of international travel and tourism industry decision makers and that SKAL is worldwide. ‘In New Zealand we often don’t see the big picture, but SKAL is an organisation that can really open doors.’
