IMUG is proud to once again partner with GALA on a local networking evening! Come for a tempting buffet, cash bar, and fine conversation with your GILT industry friends and colleagues on the private patio at Steins Beer Garden in Mountain View. Free public parking is available at surface lots or parking garages less than one block in any direction, and we'll be just a few blocks from the Mountain View CalTrain station too. Look for the intersection of Villa and Bryant on this map: http://mountainviewdowntown.com/parking-map/
Per GALA guidelines: no sponsorships, no selling, no suits = no pressure! GALA Loc Mixers are intended as relaxed, non-commercial gatherings. This is one of the many ways GALA carries out its mission to bring the industry together to share information, foster innovation among GALA members and the industry as a whole, and to offer clients collaborative value.
The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) is the world's largest trade association for the language industry with over 400 member companies in more than 50 countries. As a non-profit organization, GALA provides resources, education, advocacy, and research for thousands of global companies. GALA's mission is to support our members and the language industry by creating communities, championing standards, sharing knowledge, and advancing technology.

$5 per person is required from all attendees regardless of membership status, for the food buffet. Drinks will be additional.* Meetup will ask for payment when you RSVP.
Please RSVP via Meetup to help us plan the menu, prepare for fast entrance, and other details. It's OK to RSVP right up to the last minute, as that will help us ensure enough food for everyone!
