President's Message

Dear Colleagues, 

Change. We all know the saying that nothing stays the same in life except change. As elected county supervisors, a hunger for change motivates us to serve our communities. Even so, these last few years of unprecedented events have tested our resolve as leaders and deeply affected our constituents. 
Now is the time to reflect and recommit ourselves and our counties to Advancing Change. We’ve got a bushel of lessons learned and unique resources in our toolboxes and we’re preparing to charge forward into a bright – although uncertain – future. 
The CSAC 128th Annual Meeting in Orange County, slated for Monday November 14 through Friday November 18, offers the opportunity to come together to learn, laugh, and prepare for whatever the future holds. 
We have a substantial lineup of events to educate and entertain, including workshops and numerous policy committees where Supervisors direct the Association’s course on policy, as well as exciting caucuses and national speakers. We’ll pay special attention to the needs of each caucus and work to ensure that rural, suburban, and urban voices are all woven into the vital fabric of the Association. And all of this is taking place in the venerable Disneyland Hotel, where even the meeting rooms are magical.
The 128th CSAC Annual Meeting creates the opportunity to take stock, chart the course forward and advance important changes together. Also, as we gather together, CSAC will continue to prioritize the health and wellbeing of our members by making masks and testing supplies available to participants. Our highest priority is ensuring a safe, educational, and fun experience for all attendees. 
I know I am not alone in having much to be thankful for this year. Counties have been through so much and yet we have adapted and only grown stronger in advancing change – together. I do hope you’ll join me in magical Orange County this November.
