Skal International-USA join hands with other travel industry advocates

Published on : Thursday, April 5, 2018

Skal International-USAA delegation of tourism leaders representing Skal International-USA collaborated with other travel industry advocates for upholding key issues facing the growth and health of one of America’s economic engines at Destination Capitol Hill, organized by the U.S. Travel Association.

 
Skal International-USA president Burcin Turkkan, a member of the Skal Club of Atlanta said, “Moving forward to be more proactive on national issues after receiving feedback from our own membership is the right path. We are working hard on being advocates for our tourism issues and working with others in the industry on a national level increases our visibility and relevance. Skal in the U.S. wants to be with the big players in tourism.

 

Our participation at Destination Capitol Hill accomplished this, although it is just a start.”

 
Turkkan led a group of U.S. “Skalleagues,” including club presidents Jack Wert of Southwest Florida, Andres Hayes of Washington, D.C., Donetta Poisson of Atlanta, Georgia, along with Skal International-USA director of public relations and communications Steve Richer, also of Washington, DC.

 
For strengthening ties with national tourism organizations, Turkkan met with key Destination Capitol Hill leaders, including U.S. Travel president Roger Dow, Brand USA president Chris Thompson, Destinations International vice president Jack Johnson, and National Tour Association president Pam Inman, all of whom are members of Skal International-USA.

 
Skal International USA is currently the largest National Committee in Skal International with 2,000 members and 49 clubs nationwide.
