President's Message

Keith Carson

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Please allow me to invite you to CSAC’s 2017 Annual Meeting, November 28 through December 1, in Sacramento County. There’s no doubt that 2017 will go down in the history books as an eventful year, on the national political stage, and here in California. The Annual Meeting takes place in the state capital of what is now the sixth-largest economy in the world, and it will provide the perfect punctuation to put the year in perspective and give direction to the future as well.

Our theme this year is “Sharing the Vision.” The Golden State has a vibrant economy that provides jobs and homes while also giving each resident the opportunity to reach their potential. Together we can create public policy that reflects the diversity of our 58 counties and helps us achieve our common goals.  The CSAC Annual Meeting will provide you the tools and information you will need for the work ahead. This is our chance to work together on a shared vision.

The CSAC Annual Meeting will have thought-provoking speakers who will inform and inspire, provide workshops on the important issues that matter to counties including reducing homelessness. We will continue to explore the legal and regulatory framework around cannabis and how full legalization in 2018 will impact counties. Another workshop will offer a look at recent changes Proposition 57 makes in how we treat offenders and the services counties can offer to reduce recidivism. Our conference will have also a discussion about the national political scene and how the tumult in Washington, D.C. has and will impact California and each of our 58 Counties.

Our Annual Meeting will keep you informed, engaged and enlightened, but we also want to hear from you. The CSAC Policy Committees will convene at the Annual Meeting offering you the opportunity to impact statewide issues. The Annual Meeting also allows time for meeting old friends and colleagues, networking with your peers and developing new contacts.

I hope you can join us in Sacramento County for the CSAC Annual Meeting. I know it will be well worth your time.

Keith Carson
CSAC President
Alameda County Supervisor
