President's Message


Dear Friends & Colleagues,

It has been my honor and privilege to serve as CSAC President this year. 2016 has been busy and productive, and it's not over yet! Among my remaining duties is something I have been looking forward to all year: hosting CSAC's Annual Meeting in Palm Springs, Riverside County. It is my pleasure to invite you to join us November 29 through December 2 for a great lineup of informative workshops, important discussions, and compelling keynote speakers who will inspire, energize and motivate.

As diverse as our 58 counties are, we also face many of the same issues and we can all benefit from sharing experiences, solutions and ideas. Our Annual Meeting provides you with the time to network with you peers and learn from each other in an informal setting. And, as always, we will elect new CSAC leadership for the coming year. 

CSAC will also present the first in a series of classes that make up the New Supervisors Institute. Even if you've held other public offices this is a valuable look at the role Supervisors play in the county structure and the role counties play in California. I urge all of our newly elected Supervisors to attend this course.

I'm confident you will find our Annual Meeting well worth the investment of your time. The programs, panels, issues, speakers and the networking opportunities all provide you the opportunity to learn, grow and rejuvenate your dedication to community service. 

So again, let me extend an invitation to you to attend our Annual Meeting, November 29 through December 2 in Palm Springs, Riverside County. As I enter the final stretch as President of CSAC, I know with even more certainty that California's 58 Counties are vital to this great State. Your participation in our Association is vital, and I hope to see you in Palm Springs.

Richard Forster
CSAC President
Amador County Supervisor
