Galas Joins ECA Board

Longtime Eugene Civic Alliance partner and supporter, Dave Galas has joined the board of directors of Eugene Civic Alliance.

“I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to serve on the board of the Eugene Civic Alliance,” said Galas. “Bringing the magic of that site as a sports and entertainment venue back to the community has been the impetus behind the creation of Lane United and my time volunteering for ECA. The fact that we will be able to provide Kidsports with a much-needed new home makes the ECA vision really special. To be able to work on this project in an increased capacity and with the exceptional current members of the board is truly an honor.”

Galas is Managing Director of Lane United Football Club, a local soccer team that competes in the nationwide Premier Development League. He founded Lane United FC in 2013 with the goal of bringing high quality soccer to Lane County and of providing a new team for the vacant Civic Stadium. Galas was recently named Executive of the Year by the Premier Development League at the league’s annual Winter Summit.

“We are excited to welcome Dave to the ECA board,” said board president, Jon Anderson. “We are looking forward to the insight and support that he will provide to our team.”
