Mr. Smith Goes to Sacramento… with CCCA
Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith is starting off the new year in Sacramento at the California Contract Cities Association (CCCA)’s annual State Legislative Orientation Tour (SLOT) for the ninth year in a row.
This year’s SLOT, which runs from Jan. 6-8, 2020, connects CCCA members with legislators through three days of briefings, tours and receptions. CCCA leadership and members receive valuable facetime with legislators to gain a deeper understanding of the legislative process and highlight the priorities of contract cities.
“Since many of our Tripepi Smith VIPs are contract cities, it’s very important to track the issues that my client cities encounter,” said Ryder. “Starting off the New Year at SLOT for the last nine years has helped me stay up-to-date on CCCA priorities and the current laws affecting cities. SLOT has become my traditional kickoff to the new year at Tripepi Smith.”
Tripepi Smith is a CCCA Platinum Level Partner. Over the past decade, the firm has provided CCCA with website support, social media coordination, event photography and management of the Association’s partner committee over the past decade.
About the California Contract Cities Association (CCCA)
CCCA is a collection of member cities united for a common cause. Born in 1957 as the direct result of the “Lakewood Plan,” CCCA grew from eight contracting or member cities to 70 member cities today with more than seven million residents. Membership growth remains one of the main priorities of the Association. CCCA serves as a rallying point for cities contracting for municipal services to ensure constituents receive the best service at the minimum cost. Through municipal seminars, education, and exchange of ideas and information, CCCA combines resources to influence policy decisions that affect member cities.
