Video Journalists

GALA has enlisted the volunteer services of two of its member companies who will be providing video journalists to cover GALA 2013. They will be capturing the sights, sounds and sentiments at the conference and may stop and ask you for your thoughts and feedback. We hope you will accommodate!

GALA would like to offer special thanks to InText Translation Company and Wordbank for donating their staff's time and talent.
