TEAA Reunion in Detroit
AUGUST 17-20


The Planning Committee extends a warm invitation to you all to attend the 2017 TEAA Reunion in Detroit. Our final reunion is now less than 8 months away and so we encourage you to make your hotel reservation soon. We will first gather for a late afternoon reception on Thursday, August 17, and hold the final wrap-up session and farewell on the morning of Sunday, August 20. Speakers, discussion, touring, reuning will be the order of the day on Friday and Saturday. Among the events we are setting up are a city tour and a trip to a Detroit Tigers baseball game. In response to popular demand, we will also leave open plenty of time for you to socialize with other TEAAers. Hotel and registration information follow:


The registration fee for the reunion is $155 for former TEA and TEEA folks and $95 for their guests. Checks should be payable to "TEAA." Mail to  →→

Hotel Information

A block of rooms at the rate of only $139.00 a night has been reserved at the Courtyard Marriott Detroit Downtown hotel for the nights of our event: August 17, 18 and 19 (2017).

This is an excellent rate at a place also known as the "People Mover hotel" because Detroit's light rail system, which links all of the vibrant downtown attractions, runs right through the building on the fifth floor. To see a great photo of it on the web click
here: great photo of hotel.

The nights for our reunion event are August 17, 18 and 19, but our great rate also applies to the nights of August 16 and August 20, if you wish to extend before or after. Take advantage of the extra days to see the many features that are within walking distance of the hotel: the Detroit Institute of the Arts, Greektown, the beautifully restored river front, the Renaissance Center, and Comerica Park (home of the Tigers, who play the Dodgers that weekend). All of these are also stations on the People Mover route. Our City Tour may also give you ideas of spots to return to.
