With a twinkle in his eye and excitement in his voice, Art Moreau recalls joining Skal in 1965 as a professional networking tool to complement his sales agent job with Chicago And Southern Airline, which was later acquired by Delta Airlines. As he rose to the ranks in his airline career he also “moved up the chairs” in Skal.

Moreau has been active in three Skal Clubs in Tampa, Detroit and now Orlando, where he moved to in 2001 after retirement. He served as Skal Club President in Detroit, as well as NSCUSA President from 1987-1988 and President of NAASC in 1989. In his 50 years of Skal service and membership, he has attended 19 international congresses and 13 North America congresses.

“It has been a wonderful experience meeting Skal members from all over the world,” Moreau exclaimed. “I have been to Zimbabwe, Johannesburg, Sao Paolo, Vienna, Helsinki, Rome, Florence, Alaska, Winnipeg, and all over Mexico and the Caribbean. At every congress, every club visit, I always felt automatically accepted and embraced. It is the Skal way.”

At age 87, Moreau still plays 18 holes of golf three days a week and 9 holes two days a week. He has played with the likes of Sam Sneed and Gary Player, a far cry from his days of being a caddy, at age 12, getting 85 cents for 18 holes.

As Moreau was honored by his Skal Orlando Club for his remarkable 50 years of service, he said, “You all made me feel like a star and it has brought a tear to my eye. Never forget how many doors Skal will open up for you locally, nationally and internationally, and without a desk between you.”

Skal International Orlando was voted Skal International Club of the Year 2006-2007 and North American Club of the Year in 2007.
