TS Leadership to Attend LoCC AC
Tripepi Smith will send five team members to the 2019 League of California Cities (LoCC) Annual Conference & Expo in Long Beach at the Long Beach Convention Center. The event will take place from Oct. 16-18. As an active partner of the League and many of its member agencies, the Annual Conference is a major event for the Orange County-based, marketing-technology-public affairs firm.
Team Tripepi Smith members President Ryder Todd Smith, Director Katherine Griffiths, Director Jon Barilone, Director Mike Egan and Business Analyst Saara Lampwalla will partake in the events, visiting with LoCC members, learning from attendees and speakers and representing the voices of its clients. Additionally, Ryder will preside over a panel, “The Sixth Council Member: Social Media,” from 3:45 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
This year, the League as well as the Institute for Local Government once again tapped Team Tripepi Smith to produce award recognition videos for the Helen Putnam Awards and Beacon Awards. New to the docket of Tripepi Smith-produced videos premiering at the conference is a series of vignettes that will play during the General Session. The snippets of interviews with council members were filmed by Tripepi Smith at the League’s Mayors and Council Members Executive Forum in June 2019. This is the fourth time Tripepi Smith has produced the Putnam Award recognition video and the 3rd time it has produced the Beacon Award recognition video.
“The League of California Cities has been a key part of Tripepi Smith’s success over the years,” said Ryder. “We recently hit 18 associates on our team to match the breadth of clients we get to serve and learn from, many of which we’ve connected with via the League. As always, I’m looking forward to this year’s Annual Conference, and really, the chance to connect with many of the cities that have contributed to our firm’s success.”
Tripepi Smith is a Silver-Level Partner of the League as well as the Institute for Local Government (ILG), which the League is the parent associate of. This is the sixth consecutive year that Tripepi Smith has demonstrated support for both the Institute and League.
“Tripepi Smith has remained committed to giving back and engaging with local government as our firm has grown. It is core to our ethos as a firm,” Ryder continued. “Tripepi Smith is proud to continue investing in the League’s member cities, and by extension, the advancement of California.”
