Although GALE is a special interest group of JALT, you do not have to be a member of JALT to be a subscriber of GALE. Subscribers have full access to member rights except they cannot become GALE executive board members. Those who wish to join GALE can do so using either of these methods:
JALT members: Membership in one SIG and a local chapter are included in the JALT membership fee, and you can join additional SIGS for a separate fee. Details are available in the “furikae” form in The Language Teacher magazine. You can also write the JALT Central Office at <firstname.lastname@example.org> for more details or visit the JALT website to see other membership options. Also see this page.
Non-JALT members: ￥2,000 should be sent to the GALE treasurer. Please contact the GALE membership chair for more details.
