NEAAPA Installs New Officers During 108th Anniversary Virtual Annual Meeting

NEAAPA - The Northeast’s Entertainment Association installed its new slate of officers during its 108th anniversary annual meeting – held virtually – on Tuesday, March 23.


Outgoing President Eric Anderson, Quassy Amusement & Waterpark, Middlebury, Conn., addressed the 57 participants with remarks regarding NEAAPA’s stability and ongoing work during the COVID crisis, which brought much of the industry to a halt in 2020.


He also acknowledged the hard work done by the NEAAPA Board of Directors during his two-year tenure in not only addressing issues facing the  association and its member businesses, but also for working with parks and attractions in neighboring New York State in efforts to get them reopened during the health crisis.


In handing the gavel over, Anderson then introduced NEAAPA’s 57th President Dave Oberlander of Centerplate, Stamford, Conn.
