“Tripepi Smith is excited to return to this conference and reconnect with our friends in city manager offices across California,” said Ryder. “We are equally anticipating meeting all the newly appointed managers and beginning some great work in our towns and cities. Our work with city managers started in 2002 when we first began supporting the California City Management Foundation, and it continues to this day with over 100 cities we have served throughout the western United States.”

As an Elite level sponsor of the Cal Cities City Managers Conference and CalCities Corporate Partner, Tripepi Smith is proud to support the education and preparation of city managers and assistant managers to lead their cities well for the seventh consecutive year.
