GANG Townhall Meeting at Dolby LA June 6

This year we are holding the Game Audio Network Guild’s (GANG) Annual Townhall meeting at Dolby Labs in Los Angeles [3601 West Alameda Ave, Burbank, CA] on June 6th at 6:30 pm (until 7:30)

If you would like to attend in person (in case you are in Los Angeles for E3 that week), please reserve a spot. The theater at Dolby is not large, and we only have a small amount of available space (GameSoundCon will be taking place during the day on June 6th in the same theater, and GANG will conduct the Townhall at the end of that day).The Townhall is open to any GANG members who would like to attend (you do NOT have to participate in GameSoundCon to be able to attend.)

If you are unable to attend, you can join us LIVE ON Justin.TV

Simply use THIS LINK For The Live Online Town Hall

There is a chat section in which you can also interact with the discussion & ask questions.

The GANG Townhall is the Game Audio Network Guild’s opportunity to interact with our members, and to let the officers inform the members of the plans that are being worked on for the coming year. We are always looking to improve our member’s experience within GANG, and we look forward to sharing our plans with you and hearing your opinions.
