SKAL INTERNATIONAL FT. LAUDERDALE PALM BEACHES
MEMBER OF SKAL INTERNATIONAL
Professionals in Tourism
We had the pleasure of having our SIUSA Region IV Vice President Martha McClintock from the Jacksonville Club join us as our guest of honor and assist us in the installation ceremonies. During dinner we had the privilege of inducting three new members into our Club, Bill Lackey, Sales Manager with Boca Raton Travel, Ian Black, Director of Group Sales at The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club in Palm Beach and Joyce Schoonberg-Reed, Owner of Sarai Tours.
It seems like an end of an era having outgoing Board member Paul Alterman step down from his duties on the board. Paul has been instrumental in the growth and guidance for our Club and I’ll miss having his monthly input at our Board meetings. Mark Flager, our Vice President last year, will also be missed even though he was VP and a Board member for a short time. We will be seeing both Paul and Mark at our upcoming meetings though, so don’t despair! I want to thank both of them on behalf of the Club for their support, skill and time being involved.
Please join me in welcoming our new officers and board members for 2012. We are off to a great start to the year, with new members and great existing members. We even had a few members come back to join us after taking a brief reprieve from the Club. We may be small, but we are a close bunch that continues to embrace the tenets of Skål – “Doing business among friends”.
See you on Wednesday, May 16th at the Hilton West Palm Beach.
Cheers and Skål!
