Thank you, GALA Volunteers and Supporters!


06 November 2010

GALA would like thank the many member volunteers and supporters who contributed to association activities in 2010. Many of GALA's initiatives are made possible through GALA member support and participation.

GALA’s success is thanks to talented members who are passionate about furthering the industry and working together for mutual benefit.  In the past year, members have volunteered in numerous ways to contribute to GALA’s activities, including speaking on panels, authoring articles, providing pro bono localization for GALA materials, and speaking to the media about member areas of expertise. 

Thank you to all the members and sponsors who made our activities in 2010 possible!
