Contract Cities and Tripepi Smith Renew Agreement
Tripepi Smith and the California Contract Cities Association (CCCA) have renewed a professional services agreement for the next year. Tripepi Smith will deliver content authoring, social media management, website technical support, and photography services to CCCA. In return, this partnership provides CCCA with professional support for digital communications to match the strong reputation and history of CCCA. Moreover, as part of the agreement, Tripepi Smith is being recognized as a Gold Level sponsor of CCCA.
Tripepi Smith has significant experience working with a variety of local government agencies, giving the firm the right background to be an effective partner with CCCA. Tripepi Smith’s work for CCCA includes authoring and executing the monthly newsletter “The Connection”, planning and scheduling routine social media posts, providing ongoing technical support to the WordPress-powered website (built by Tripepi Smith in 2015), and photography services at all CCCA events.
Contract Cities Executive Director Marcel Rodarte commented on the partnership, “Contract Cities has successfully relied on the team at Tripepi Smith for several years. Tripepi Smith delivers quality work that reflects familiarity with the issues and challenges members of Contract Cities are seeking to address.”
Lou La Monte, President of Contract Cities affirmed his support for Tripepi Smith, “Tripepi Smith can be trusted as a partner in local government. They work hard, show respect for all parties, demonstrate an innovative style, and have a strong history of working with cities throughout California. All these traits have made them a premier perennial partner for California Contract Cities Association.”
Tripepi Smith counts several member cities of CCCA as clients, including: Norwalk, Bellflower, Paramount, Duarte, Walnut, Claremont, and La Cañada Flintridge. Many contract cities, due to their smaller size and recognition of timely expertise and shared resource economics, consider leveraging consultants like Tripepi Smith to aid the communications.
“Communications and public engagement is one of those areas where technology and changing social habits are undermining the old methods for cities to connect with their residents. The team at Tripepi Smith dedicates itself to contemplating this change and helping cities adjust to the Internet era when social media, email, and text messaging dominate the platforms of communication,” said Ryder Todd Smith, President at Tripepi Smith.
Tripepi Smith’s support for Contract Cities has been consistent and strong. “CCCA is home to many of our clients,” continued Ryder. “Our CCCA partnership gives us a chance to support the local government community that we enjoy serving, and Tripepi Smith can showcase our skills to the CCCA membership.”
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.
