At Your Service
While life is never quiet at Tripepi Smith, it is about to get crazier. The local government conference season is upon us. Between now and December, I will find myself in Sacramento, Indian Wells, Nashville, Long Beach and Santa Barbara. There will not be a safe bacon-wrapped date in sight.

This hectic pace of conference season will be underpinned by another development: three new associates joined our team on August 28, bringing our band of communication experts to 18... plus a few consultants. That is 18 brains that wake every morning thinking about how to help our clients execute on their visions, deliver their messages or otherwise advance communities. I am really proud of the talent we have assembled at Tripepi Smith, and based on the client feedback, clients love our hiring secret sauce.

When you work in the local government sector–whether at a private company or public agency–there is a sense of a shared mission. Within Team Tripepi Smith, we often discuss our role in helping our public and private clients advance the local government space, and how we have been entrusted by those we serve, and therefore, we must serve those who trust us well. Hence, not only do we like to win RFPs and grow our team, but we also turn right around and sponsor conferences, speak on panels and share ideas at large with the hopes of advancing the sector.

Our team judges our work based on the impact we would leave if we disappeared tomorrow. It is a threshold that helps us evaluate if we are making the positive impact across local government that we sought to make over ten years ago when we got into the business.

Would you miss Tripepi Smith if we were gone? I know I would miss all of you.

See you on the conference circuit.
