TEA's Education Forum 2017 was conducted at the ArtCenter Hillside Campus in Ahmanson Auditorium and the Western Division Board of Directors and the Education Committee owe a special word of appreciation to ArtCenter for hosting. 

On behalf of TEA, we look forward to building upon our special partnership with ArtCenter.

Our intention is to offer a new series in 2018 with new subjects, new speakers and new ideas as we continue to examine and share "Best Practices" in our themed entertainment industry. The TEA Western Division encourages and welcomes ideas and suggestions from its members as we build upon the success of the Education Forum program. -- D.P.
