Senior Business Analyst Melanie James, Business Analysts Kevork Kurdoghlian and Charlie Mounts and Junior Business Analysts Madeline Pettit, Audrin Baghaie and Devin Antonio will be in attendance at the session in Santa Clarita on Thursday, July 27.

“After attending the 2022 Summer Session, I’m eager to return to another MMASC event,” said Kevork. “I enjoy the positive relationships that our team gets to foster and develop at these events, while also learning new tools and local government best practices to share with our nearly 200 clients.” 

Tripepi Smith has a long-standing partnership with MMASC and is honored to be a Diamond Level Sponsor. Through this sponsorship, the team will not only be attending the session but photographer and videographer, Audrin, will be lending his skills to capture exciting moments throughout the day. 

“Events like these are always amazing opportunities to grow my skills, but also capture so many genuine moments throughout the session,” added Audrin. “Telling stories with imagery is a passion of mine, and the MMASC events have stories worth telling.”

Attendees will engage with new tools and benefit from professional development sessions during this one-day in-person conference and will walk away with best practices to help them excel and lead, all while making connections with colleagues throughout Southern California.
