Skal's latest report on membership development for the Asian Area is to be presented to President Hulya Aslantas and the Asian Area board on Thursday 21 May in Incheon, Korea at the 38th Skal Asian Area Congress.

The report makes for interesting reading, as Asia is the region that is currently showing the strongest growth.

 With membership standing at 2,514, Asia now represents 13% of Skal's worldwide membership of 19,478 (LY 19,409) which includes 318 Young Skal members.

Skal Asia has grown 14% since last year. In 1999 the Asian Area had just 1,659 members.

Skal Intl is forecasting that membership will grow in the Asian Area between 14 to 18% in 2009 depending on the number of new clubs that are opened. Currently there are 4 planned:

- Jakarta (a restart of the oldest club in Asia) will be club no.13. It was the first Skal Club to open in Asia 75 years ago in December (Skal is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year so Jakarta is as old as Skal itself). It is being rejuvenated with the help of a few former members and Skal Intl Bali;
- Narita (new)
- Rodrigues (new)
- Puerto Princess (new).
