Ask the BoD - Responses

What is being done or considered to mend (or create new) relationships with hotels for future TETA conferences to make it more affordable, or at least more reasonable, for more people to attend Theatrefest?

"I am in the process of setting up a meeting to discuss contracts with the Hyatt that were agreed upon by the former CFO of TETA. I have only today spoken to a representative of another hotel group who Is very interested in working with us in the future. Currently, we are working as fast as we can to set up a time with the Hyatt folks to examine any contracts they may have. So to make a long story short, we are still in the process of working on this issue. Thanks for asking. - TETA President"

Can we hire a meeting and events planner? Someone who plans conventions (like TheatreFest) for a living?

"Hiring a meeting and events planner is certainly under consideration. At this point, there has not been enough time for the BOD to examine the contracts the former CFO signed with the Hyatt. I must say, however, that I have been contacted this week by a representative from another hotel group that is interested in working with us in the future. Thanks for asking. - TETA President"
