Host of the World Congress on the Cruise ship RCCL Symphonie of the Seas – 2021 Membership Increase campaign – No. 1 worldwide for highest percentage increase in members.




Dear Miami Skal member,

What a rewarding year we’ve had! Miami received the platinum award for the highest increase in new members – worldwide!

We kindly ask you to support us again in the coming year. Please sign up under membership or contact us at [email protected] – Thank you!

Looking forward, we are bullish. Our hospitality industry was hoping, that the Covid-19 crisis would be over as soon as a vaccine became available. Well, that has not been the case and we learned, that there will be many more waves, with more potential turns in this saga. As the sunshine state, Florida has an outdoor economy, which fared better than many other states.

We expect to continue on the same growth curve and our new board member Fernando Harb, will support new and existing members to make sure you’ll get the most out of your membership. Also our new event member, Sergio Koiffman – will come up with some informative and entertaining events. Please reach out to us if you have any suggestions or your venue would like to host one of our monthly events.

And if you haven’t noticed it yet – our new member Miss Kedi loves TikTok, posting on Instagram, Facebook and of course LinkedIn (Skal International Miami/ Skal Club Miami – please follow us).  Instagram is definitely our preferred social media to update you on a weekly basis with new information.

You will receive the exiting 2022 event calendar in the coming days.


Happy New Year!
