Tripepi Smith Principal Jon Barilone and Junior Business Analysts Kalee Cummings and Melanie Moore will be joining the Municipal Management Association of Northern California (MMANC) in Petaluma for their Summer Symposium on July 14, 2022.

“These opportunities to connect with local government leaders and professionals and discuss important issues are invaluable. I look forward to getting a chance to meet MMANC’s members and reconnect after the COVID hibernation,” said Jon.

While Jon has attended several conferences and events of this manner, this is Kalee and Melanie’s first conference with the firm. Tripepi Smith supports MMANC as a Platinum Partner for the ninth consecutive year. Tripepi Smith has also recently assisted MMANC with their rebranding process in which a new color palette, refreshed logo and new website were introduced.

“As someone who worked on the MMANC website redesign, I was able to get a glance at the great things this organization does. I’m excited to jump into the conference world and see one of these events in action,” added Kalee.

The one-day conference’s theme is “Our Climate, Our Future, Our Leadership.” The sessions will highlight “significant undertakings affecting the North Bay and North Coast communities and the state over the past few years.” The program includes speakers with expertise in emergency management and climate action.


MMANC 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. It is the oldest and one of the largest organizations of its kind in the nation. Today, its goals include facilitating professional development in municipal management; enhancing opportunities for professionals pursuing careers in public administration; establishing a forum for the exchange of ideas, information, research, and experiences among those in municipal management; creating a communications network between the administrator, academician, and others concerned with developing effective local government; and providing input and policy recommendations to the League of California Cities, the International City/County Management Association, Institute for Local Government, Cal-ICMA and other recognized associations.
