Participation in Conference Extends Collaboration between Two Major Associations

 

Seattle, Washington, USA (17 May 2011) – The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) will host its signature Speed Networking program at the Association of Language Companies 2011 conference this week in Las Vegas. The GALA Speed Networking session will be held Thursday, 19 May, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm local time. Hans Fenstermacher, GALA Board Chair, will emcee the event and a number of GALA members will be available to guide participants at the renowned networking event. All attendees are welcome.

 

The GALA Speed Networking offering at ALC11 is part of the GALA – ALC Alliance forged earlier this year to enhance benefits to members of both associations. In addition to the networking event, GALA will participate in an industry plenary at the conference, which is an extension of the initial plenary offered in March at GALA 2011 in Lisbon. The GALA – ALC Alliance also provides discounts to ALC and GALA members.

 

The Alliance was born out of discussions that began at GALA’s first Language of Business conference, GALA 2009 in Cancun. “In Cancun and during subsequent meetings, we have explored the many ways we can be more useful and relevant to our members by working together. This initial collaboration is a first step in what we hope is an ongoing, long-term relationship,” said Hans Fenstermacher, GALA board chairman. 

 

More information about joint discounts and benefits for ALC and GALA members will be available on the associations’ websites: www.alcus.org and www.gala-global.org.
