TEA calls for 2017 Board candidates

The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) is calling on its members as the body seeks candidates to join its Board of Directors.

Divided between the International Board and the TEA’s four Division Boards – Asia Pacific, Eastern North America, Europe & Middle East and Western North America – positions are open to all TEA members interested in helping to shape the future of the association.

Board directors elected to a position will serve for three year terms, while associate member representatives (AMR) will serve for two years.

To be eligible to become a Board director, employees of standard member companies will be eligible to submit their names to be considered, while employees of associate member companies will be eligible to be considered for non-voting AMR positions across all five of the TEA’s Boards.

The final ballot deadline for Board candidates is on Friday 15 September. For more information, click here.
