Allow me to take a minute of your time to wish you the brightest of holiday seasons, a very happy New Year, and a 2013 that is full of opportunity, success and service to the people of California. Personally, I am immensely humbled by the trust you’ve placed in me to serve as your President for the coming year.
CSAC Institute has partnered with California State University-Northridge to offer an exclusive, executive-level Master of Public Administration degree program. If you’ve ever thought about taking that next step in your education … this is an opportunity you will not want to miss! The program is designed exclusively for California county staff and elected officials and will be focused on the challenges and opportunities counties face.
As we look back on 2012, the CSAC Finance Corporation is pleased to reflect on the continued success of our programs. Our CalTRUST investment pool, CSCDA finance programs and U.S. Communities purchasing program continued their long history of assisting public agencies and we saw our newest program, Coast2Coast Rx grow rapidly.
One beauty of CSAC is its diversity. We are as diverse as California itself – geographically, politically and demographically. For CSAC to be truly reflective in policy development, though, it is important for us to be a reflection of the state residents we all represent. In that light, our officers enthusiastically supported the recent creation of the Latino Caucus of California Counties.
