TS to Attend MMASC Annual Conference
The Municipal Management Association of Southern California (MMASC) will host its 66th Annual Conference Wednesday, Nov. 13 through Friday, Nov. 15 at Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort in Santa Barbara, CA. The theme for this year’s conference is “Inspiring Today, Leading Tomorrow.” Local government will come together to connect with peers, gain tools to help build success within their cities and reflect on their impact within the communities they serve.
Tripepi Smith team attendance includes the firm’s President Ryder Todd Smith, along with Director Mike Egan and Business Analysts Melanie James, Bria Balliet, Karen Villaseñor and Saara Lampwalla. Ryder will also present on a panel entitled “The Power of Teams” at 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13.
“Tripepi Smith recognizes the important role MMASC plays in training and supporting the next generation of local government leaders. We’re proud to support them year after year,” said Ryder. “MMASC gives our team members many opportunities for strengthening relationships with current clients as well as connecting with prospective clients. Our success as a firm has been built upon strong partnerships with associations like MMASC.”
Tripepi Smith renewed its support of MMASC for the seventh year in a row in 2019, affirming its belief in local government associations as powerful networks that inspire learning, collaboration and innovation in the public sector.
Formed in 1953 to address the professional needs of local government employees and their private sector counterparts, MMASC is one of the oldest and largest associations of its kind in the nation. It is recognized by both the International City / County Management Association (ICMA) and the League of California Cities. With over 800 members, MMASC represents cities that serve an estimated 22 million residents. The membership is composed of city managers, HR directors, analysts, graduate students, interns, executive recruiters, private sector consultants, nonprofit managers, county administrators and special district professionals from local governments within a nine-county area of Southern California.
