TSA Partners with Contract Cities Association
Tripepi Smith & Associates and the California Contract Cities Association (CCCA) have entered into an agreement for professional services that includes Tripepi Smith providing content authoring, social media management, videography and photography services to CCCA. This partnership provides CCCA with professional support for branding and communications to match the strong reputation and history of CCCA. As part of the agreement, Tripepi Smith is being recognized as a Gold Level sponsor of CCCA.
The Tripepi Smith team has experience with a variety of local government agencies, giving the firm the right background to quickly partner with CCCA. Tripepi Smith’s work for CCCA includes authoring and executing the monthly newsletter “The Connection”, rebranding the social media, providing ongoing social media content management and photography and videography services.
Contract Cities Executive Director Sam Olivito commented on the partnership, “Ryder and his team have been a part of Contract Cities for several years. When the Board expressed a desire for improved communications, Tripepi Smith was the natural partner for CCCA. We know their work, we trust their work and we are very happy with the results.”
Victor Manalo, City of Artesia Councilman and President of CCCA also noted his support for the partnership, “Tripepi Smith has shown significant commitment to local government and CCCA. They have added value to our association and our members, and they clearly demonstrate that they understand how important it is for local governments to communicate effectively.”
The partnership was a logical choice for Tripepi Smith as well. “Many of our existing clients are involved with Contract Cities. This partnership gives us a chance to support the local government community that we enjoy serving, and Tripepi Smith can showcase our skills to the CCCA membership,” said Ryder Todd Smith, President of Tripepi Smith. “Our unique team skill set sets us apart from other marketing firms and Contract Cities recognizes that.”
CCCA is a collection of member cities united for a common cause. Born in 1957 as the direct result of the “Lakewood Plan”, CCCA grew from eight contracting or member cities to 70 member cities today with more than 7 million residents. Membership growth remains one of the main priorities of the Association. CCCA serves as a rallying point for cities contracting for municipal services to ensure constituents receive the best service at the minimum cost. Through municipal seminars, education, exchange of ideas and information, CCCA combines resources to influence policy decisions affecting member cities.
