The newly elected Skål International President, Burcin Turkkan, has been busy restructuring Skål International to achieve better fiscal policies, strategic growth of membership, and restructure of the governance.

Skål established eight committees, co-chaired by appointed Skål International members, where meaningful contributions and a carefully planned implementation process will be discussed and worked on. Such committees will add valuable assistance to the Skål International Executive Board and portfolios.
