COVID-19 specific resources


Message from Jennie Nevin, TEA Chief Operating Officer

The Themed Entertainment Association is working to serve our members, fullfill our mission, and maintain a useful presence for you in these tough times - to help the community stay connected as we all look forward to a time of recovery.

These are unsettling times, having an impact on every aspect of life. We realize that every day, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you are faced with difficult decisions - because we are facing them as well. There's no playbook for this situation. We will all be changed. Our industry will change. But by keeping the community together, we will adapt and recover together. We are a creative community. We are hard workers, team players and problem solvers.

Below is a list of resources and channels for you. TEA Headquarters is here - to answer your questions, connect you to your colleagues and the industry, to listen to your suggestions and concerns. Please be sure to let us know if you have a new email address so as not to miss any communications. We are here to help! [email protected]

Thank you for your membership and for being a part of this global community. We love our members. We are grateful for you. -- Jennie Nevin
