Having an opportunity to give back to the TEA after it has given me so much is such an honor. The Themed Entertainment Association is an organization where those that inspire can become mentors, mentors can become peers and peers become friends. We are a group of professionals dedicated to elevating each other and the industry, putting aside competitive priorities and forming relationships that go way beyond the job. I invite you to join us as we continue this journey and hope that you too can form the network and friendships that I call my professional family.
The Goal of the Eastern North America Board is to create more options and more meaningful activities to participate in. Our Event Committee is working to create a better selection of virtual events, mixer locations and event types, adding places that highlight our industry and the vast interests of our membership. The intent is to combine networking opportunity with exploration and discovery. This means more education, mentoring, and adventure with events like The TEA Talks (including TEA Tech Talks), The Imagination Workshop, Meet the Professional and TEA Explores. These are just the beginning of what the Eastern Division has in store.
The Eastern Division covers a large territory, so we are bringing the TEA to where the membership lives. The Eastern North America Board has been championing the HUBS program for a few years, and now we want to take it even further. HUBS is here to empower members to spread the benefits of TEA to cities all over, but we do not expect you to do it alone. Whether you are member, company, or an individual, we are committed to helping you get involved and give you the tools and support you need to create networking opportunities and a broader exposure to the TEA community.
Your Board is here to support and represent you and we thank you for the opportunity. Greg Senner TEA Eastern North America Division Board President
