This is New York Skal Club Inc. dba Skal International New York. On April 1, 1938, the Skål Club of North America (Skål Club of New York, No. 28) was founded. This page is for the SKAL New York City Club. As the first Skål Club established in North America, the New York Club assisted and guided in the formation of other Skål Clubs on this continent.
Operating as usual
Another wonderful experience as part of the international membership of SKAL. My company operated a women’s Caucasus tour that began in Baku,Azerbaijan. We invited a member of SKAL BAKU to meet with us. Here is Ellada Aliyeva who spoke to us elegantly about women and life generally in Baku. What a charming and fascinating speaker!
We donated to their scholarship fund for a young woman entering our industry.
From now on, we will search for interesting speakers like Ellada to enhance our tours.
I’m in Baku Azerbaijan with a group from my company. Contacted SKAL Baku and they offered to send a speaker to address us. Another wonderful benefit of the international network of friends.
