While continuing the tempo which was set by Past President Ernest Dias, Shekhar and his Skål International Goa Board Members have a vision of creating a niche for the Club in the areas of Conservation of Environment, CSR, Social Causes concerning our Industry – Hospitality & Travel, to archive the history of Skål International Goa to follow statutory requirements and above all giving Skål International Goa a voice in India, in Asia and the World.
This would bring about a better visibility for Skål International Goa on the local, national, and international platform.
