Celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March, Skål Wellington held its AGM at the James Cook Grand Chancellor with an emphasis on transition and rejuvenation.

Sally Attfield (Tourism Industry Aotearoa) was elected President and Graham Mann (Welman Technologies) as Vice President.

President Sally acknowledged Michael Baines as Past President and the enduring strength of both the club and tourism in the region.

 

“Wellington has a unique place in New Zealand, with direct proximity to the Parliament, Government departments, Embassies and the large number of industry associations.  We intend to make the most use of these connections to complement the efforts of the broader tourism industry and keep our membership entertained and informed,” said Sally Attfield.

 

“It is a significant year for the Wellington club, as we are celebrating our 51st birthday. The club intends to continue its proud leadership traditions. We were the first club constituted in New Zealand in 1967 and we were also the first to elect a woman as President (Cecilia Vincent) back in 1990,” she added.

 

In keeping with the spirit of the day, Pania Tyson-Nathan, CEO of NZ Māori Tourism (NZMT) was invited to address the audience and spoke of her members’ significant achievements, growth, and contribution to New Zealand’s dynamic tourism landscape. She expressed that Māori tourism, and Māori business in general, were currently enjoying a productive and very diverse success in a broad range of economic endeavours, which would contribute to a sustainable future for tourism.

 

Skål Wellington meets the second Thursday of each month.
