The California County Information Services Directors Association (CCISDA) has retained a new management company, the Association Resource Center (ARC), to manage the association and its conferences.

ARC is the company that also manages the business and conferences hosted by the Municipal Information Systems Association of California (MISAC), which represents California municipal technologists.

CCISDA represents technologists from all 58 California counties in the area of IT and county government.

“CCISDA is excited to retain ARC as its management partner,” CCISDA President Rami Zakaria, the chief information officer for Sacramento County, said in a news release from ARC. “Building on years of success with our past management and capitalizing on ARC’s expertise in delivering high-quality management and partnership development, we look forward to ensuring our members are well served and prepared for many years to come.”

ARC, founded in 1980, serves more than 25 association and foundation partners and has a staff of 25.

“We are so proud to have CCISDA join the ARC family of association partners,” said ARC President Camron King. “The team here has hundreds of years of collective experience and a collaborative mindset that we look forward to putting to work for the forward-thinking members of CCISDA.”

ARC began providing management services for CCISDA on Dec. 1.

The CCISDA Board of Directors will meet Monday to discuss whether to hold a conference this spring and, if so, whether it would be in person, virtual or hybrid, said Brad Walker, ARC’s Folsom-based senior account executive.

CCISDA’s fall conference is scheduled for Oct. 30-Nov. 2 at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Olympic Valley, near Lake Tahoe.

The next MISAC conference is scheduled for Oct. 2-5 at the Portola Hotel/Monterey Conference Center in Monterey.
