The meeting was well attended, a collective photo opportunity took place, both President Sk. Sunil VA and National President Sk. Carl Vaz welcomed everyone and introduced their respective board members with the proceedings getting underway with Chairman, National Congress and Events Director, Skal Club of Bombay (144) Sk. Sunita Amarnani making an elaborate presentation on the events planned for the forthcoming National Congress. The National Board members then provided their feedback on the presentation, event dates, how it could be further enhanced and foster unity among the clubs and its members.  

The dawn of the new year didn’t turn out to be promising as expected, owing to the Omicron virus which ushered in the third wave and proved to be a mood dampener of sorts. With the surge in the number of cases, the Club could not go ahead as planned with the event in January and hence it was postponed to February.
