President Ryder Todd Smith, Directors Jennifer Fitzgerald and Jennifer Vaughn, Senior Business Analyst Saara Lampwalla, Business Analysts Sara Madsen and Kaetlyn Hernandez, and Junior Business Analyst Nolan Voge will be in Indian Wells from May 12-15, 2022.

To kick off the event, Ryder will be sharing his social media and communication expertise on a panel on Friday, May 13 at 11:20 a.m. He will join the City of Cudahy’s Mayor Pro-Tem Jose Gonzalez, Facebook’s U.S. Politics and Government Outreach Representative Adán Chavez and the City of Lakewood’s Director of Communication Bill Grady for the session entitled “Strengthening Your Social Media Presence: Tips from the Experts.”

“Although COVID was the catalyst for many public agencies to look to social media as their main communication platform due to limited in-person interaction, it remains an important tool that public agencies must cultivate to truly engage their residents,” said Ryder. “I am excited to share my thoughts on how public agencies, particularly contract cities, can use social media tools to benefit their residents and community engagement strategies.”

Tripepi Smith is a Platinum Associate Member of CCCA, and has assisted the organization on several projects, including: developing a new website, providing strategic planning facilitation, video production, photography and media outreach.

The sessions throughout CCCA’s 2022 Annual Municipal Seminar focus on “strength through collaboration,” with session topics ranging from strategic partnerships in workforce development and retention, modern water infrastructure, and building better communities together during California’s housing crisis.
