    To be eligible to vote, these are the conditions that Skål Clubs worldwide must fulfill on 25 August 2023:

    • The balance of membership fees owed to Skål International cannot exceed Euros 200. Debts of new members approved during August will not be taken into account.

    • A minimum of 10 members must be recorded on the Skål International database.

    Clubs with up to 65 Active/Life/Retired/Young Skål Professional members will be entitled to one vote and those with 66 or more Active/Life/Retired/Young Skål Professional, will have two votes.

    Clubs can at any time check their financial status with Skål International through the Officers Dashboard. They are kindly required to select the members for whom payment is being made. This step is important for all parts, this way, the General Secretariat can identify the paid members and these automatically receive the virtual membership card.
