2020 July 22-26 The 2020 GAL Convention has been canceled. Tacoma, WA Guild of American Luthiers 23rd Convention / Exhibition Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we have canceled our 23rd GAL Convention/Exhibition for 2020. Our plan is to reschedule for either the summer of 2021 or 2022, depending on world health, travel restrictions, and other factors. We will keep members apprised of our progress in the coming months and will look forward seeing you at a future GAL Convention. Not a GAL member but want to get more info about future conventions?
