It’s an Election Year! Run for the GALA Board

GALA’s board of directors is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the association. Association leadership requires bold visionaries and thoughtful advisers. It requires industry experience, blue-sky thinking, and a collaborative approach. It requires an unwavering belief that GALA serves an essential role in the global language industry and that it has a bright future. 

If that sounds like you, we invite you to become part of GALA’s global leadership team by running for a position on the Board of Directors.

GALA stands out as a diverse professional community. It is a connector of people, companies, and ideas from a spectrum of markets, locales, and organization types. GALA is a platform where individuals and organizations can learn, share, and inspire one another, no matter where they work. 

In November, the GALA membership will elect 4 board members for two-year terms. We invite leaders representing all our member segments – small and large LSPs and interpreting companies, technology firms, universities, heads of client localization teams – to run for the board and provide informed counsel for major strategic decisions and directions. 

For those of you whose interest is piqued, but who are worried about the commitment, I encourage you to chat with a current board member to learn about the realities of the role. You’ll find that board leadership is a manageable commitment that pays real dividends including personal and professional growth, increased visibility, professional camaraderie and collaboration, and more than a little bit of fun. If you are a person that is enthusiastic about your professional community and looking for growth opportunities, I encourage you to run for the GALA board.
