CCISDA 2017 spring conference

LinkSource is Going For Gold at CCISDA

The California County Information Services Directors Association (CCISDA) is the official organization of the county information technology directors and chief information officers in the state of California. CCISDA represents all 58 California counties for government information technology.

Each year, CCISDA hosts two conferences; one in the Spring and one in the Fall. They expect approximately 300 people in attendance, with at least 77 from city, county and state agencies. LinkSource Technologies® is "Going for Gold" and is excited to attend the upcoming CCISDA event on Monday, April 10th at Squaw Valley in North Lake Tahoe. The attendees of this event are CIOs, GISOs, ISOs, network managers, and other top-level management representing county IT in California.

“We’re really excited to attend this event. It’s a great place for intelligence gathering, education and networking. I like this event because it has an intimate setting with a wide range of people represented from C-level to Directors and everyone else in between. It makes our experience very valuable.” – Michelle Ulrich, Director of Marketing & Cyber Security Coordinator

CCISDA conferences strive to promote camaraderie amongst peers and provide education via the numerous keynote speakers, roundtable discussions and sessions. This conference features keynote speaker Don Crawley (aka. “The Compassionate Geek”) who will share the principles of “Customer Service for Geeks”. The conference also offers vendors an opportunity to exhibit and mingle with attendees.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Criminal Justice Workgroup
  • Security Roundtable
  • Property Systems Workgroup

“This is a great opportunity for our team to connect with high-level officials from our local government and tackle topics that affect our state on a deep technological level. We are looking forward to meeting with key county personnel and getting to know them.” – Frank Mastro, Director of Sales

Michelle and Frank recently attended the TechWire Industry briefing facilitated by the Sacramento County Chief Information Officer, Rami Zakaria. Rami’s presentation was very informative and offered insight into how they’re doing things differently at the county level. Rami’s vision is clear and he seems very driven to push the county into the 21st century the right way.
