TSA at Contract Cities AMS
Tripepi Smith returned to the California Contract Cities Annual Municipal Seminar for the fifth year in a row. Tripepi Smith president Ryder Todd Smith attended on behalf of the firm to learn, listen and mingle with local government leaders from across Southern California. The Annual Municipal Seminar is the largest event for the California Contract Cities Association each year. This year was no exception with over 450 attendees at the conference.
Several Tripepi Smith clients were also present at the conference, including MuniServices, Climatec, Independent Cities Finance Authority, City of Duarte, Trackdown Management, California Department of Veteran Affairs and City of La Cañada Flintridge.
The California Contract Cities Association represents a substantial investment for Tripepi Smith. TSA staff are routinely seen at monthly meetings and the firm provides photographic services for the Association through its Civic Business Journal subsidiary.
“Spending five days in the desert in May for the last five years have been invaluable. While it is a significant investment of time and resources, I learn a ton, meet some great people with great ideas and hopefully add some value to the experience for others. If there was one conference I could go to each year, this is it,” asserted Ryder Todd Smith, president of Tripepi Smith.
Tripepi Smith was also a sponsor of the WiFi access in the ballroom, enabling attendees to stay connected no matter their location in the hotel. “Sponsoring the WiFi access was a great fit for us. Tripepi Smith partners with organization to help create and execute online strategies, so it only made sense we could also help all the attendees to get online and connect to some sweet, sweet bandwidth!”
Tripepi Smith is a Gold Level sponsor of the California Contract Cities Association and donated significant resources toward the production and delivery of a revamped CCCA Promotion Video for the Association.
