Discussion Groups Link You to Your Colleagues

GALA Choruses supports a variety of ways for members to stay informed and to network with other member choruses. The networking capability is frequently cited as one of the most valuable aspects of membership in GALA Choruses. Information about programs and events is sent through e-blasts. You can join the mailing list to receive these communications. There are nine different discussion groups on Google that can be used to obtain input on a particular question or issue from colleagues. Each of the discussion groups is described below.
