The Institute’s effectiveness in promoting good government at the
local level is greatly enhanced by its close working relationship
with the associations that represent counties, cities and special
districts: the California State Association of Counties, the
League of California Cities and the California Special Districts
The Institute’s relationship with CSAC, CSDA and the League
notwithstanding, the Institute invites all local officials to
take advantage of the Institute’s resources. The Institute also
welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with other local agency
associations in pursuit shared commitments to good government at
the local level.
The primary purpose of the California State Association
of Counties (CSAC) is to represent counties before the California
Legislature, administrative agencies and the federal government.
In addition, CSAC places a strong emphasis on educating state and
federal decision-makers, as well as the public about the value
and need for county programs and services.
