“I joined the SKAL International Columbus a little over a year ago, the friendship, connections and source of advice I have found are immeasurable. Promoting a positive environment and friendship among representatives from different generations in the Travel and Tourism Industry can be difficult but the leadership of this organization makes it flawlessly. The thoughtfulness and generosity of SKAL International Columbus makes me feel really proud to be part of it.”
Juan Laginia, General Manager | Crowne Plaza Hotel Columbus Downtown

HAPPINESS! GOOD HEALTH! FRIENDSHIP! LONG LIFE! SKAL!

“ I have been a member of SKAL Columbus for over 5 years and have enjoyed the camaraderie of my fellow SKALeagues during that time. One value of my membership and participation with SKAL is the opportunity to build relationships with my colleagues in the travel and tourism industry. I have learned so much from my SKAL colleagues from across the globe about the hospitality industry and about being a good corporate citizen. Through my experience with SKAL, I have a much better appreciation of the role our industry plays on the national and world stage. It has also provided an opportunity to “give back” to my community by working with our local Ronald McDonald House to help raise funds and to provide meals for the families staying with them while they have a child in the hospital. “
