Tripepi Smith to Attend MMANC Annual Conference
Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith will head to Sacramento this October to attend the Municipal Management Association of Northern California’s (MMANC) 2019 Annual Conference. Tripepi Smith has stepped up to sponsor keynote speaker Eric Schnure, a well-regarded expert on speechwriting and communications. This additional $2,500 support demonstrates the depth of Tripepi Smith’s commitment to MMANC as a strong partner to local government.
“I’ve been fortunate to attend MMANC’s Annual Conference, both as a speaker and a guest, almost every year since 2014,” said Ryder. “The conference gives me a lot to look forward to: spending time with our Tripepi Smith VIPs up north, learning how cities innovate and meeting up-and-coming staff dedicated to developing their careers.”
MMANC’s Annual Conference marks the yearly culmination of its mission to provide professional development opportunities for local government staff. This year, attendees have the opportunity to attend 15 sessions on topics ranging from human-centered design to tax ballot measures. MMANC also offers five Credentialed Government Leader courses throughout the conference to build management skills among analysts and other mid-level staff.
Outside of educational sessions, professionals have multiple opportunities to network and will hear from two keynote speakers: Julia Burrows, a special assistant to the mayor of Sacramento, and Eric Schnure, a former White House speechwriter. Due to Tripepi Smith’s sponsorship of the conference, Ryder will have the opportunity to introduce the latter.
“Tripepi Smith will continue to support associations like MMANC that foster the next generation of civic leaders,” said Ryder. “It’s at annual conferences, in educational sessions among peers, that city staff expand their perception of what’s possible both for their agencies and themselves as public servants. Eric Schnure can speak to that and share many other insights that have great synergy with what we do at Tripepi Smith. I’m honored to introduce him.”
Ryder’s attendance marks the latest development in the long-standing and productive relationship between Tripepi Smith and MMANC. Over the past seven years, Tripepi Smith has supported the organization as a Platinum-Level Partner with financial contributions and in-kind photography services. Tripepi Smith received the MMANC Booster Award for its support of the organization in 2014.
The Municipal Management Association of Northern California is a membership organization of local government management professionals located throughout the 49 counties of Northern California. MMANC was formed in 1950 to address the professional needs of public management staff.
