SKAL - the international association of tourism professionals that has floundered in Bali in recent years following the Bali bombing, is taking bold initial steps to re-establish its presence on the Island.
The Bali comeback is being organized under the Club's new chairman, Phil Hill, General Manager of the Ramada Benoa Resort, who has already established an executive committee busily compiling a program of community service and social events for a steadily growing base of Bali members.
SKAL - whose members are comprised of travel industry executives and managers, boasts 25,000 members worldwide in over 500 Clubs spread across more than 80 countries. Local meetings of SKAL are open to members and their guests, visiting Skaleagues holidaying in Bali, and travel professionals wishing to attend and learn more about the organization. The Club holds monthly gatherings at rotating venues across the Island.
Next Meeting April 1
The next meeting of the Bali Skal Club is scheduled for 12 noon on Friday, April 1, 2005, at the Pica's Tapas Restaurant at the Kuta Galleria. The meeting commences with cocktails followed by a brief presentation by Dr Patrick Monserrat, a local Chiropractor practicing in Bali.
A Valued Member of the Community
Since 1997 the Bali Skal Club has successfully raised more than US$40,000 for local worthy causes including scholarships for students preparing for a career in tourism as well as organizing a number of fun-filled social events for the local tourism industry. More recently, the Bali club managed in only two weeks to raise US$ 30,000 for tsunami relief.
