What Your Peers Are Saying About the Program

The CCISDA/CSAC Credential Program provided an environment for me to gain greater perspective into the services delivered by my County. Attending classes with CAO's, Board Members and Department Heads as my classmates forced me to look beyond technical topics and to the characteristics of a leader. I regularly recommend this program to others in my County. I enjoyed the program so much that after completing the credential, I went on to complete the requirements of the CSAC Institute Fellows program. ~Art Robison, Director of Information Systems, Butte County

Most of the credential program classes were interactive and provided an atmosphere of sharing and collaboration. I found that to be one of the best aspects of the program. Meeting IT counterparts from other agencies and working with the in-class tasks was a great experience. As a CIO from a small rural county, not all information that was provided in each class was always relevant to our environment, but I would have to say that in each class there were nuggets of information that I found very useful. The conversations that were sparked because of a question from the course material or from someone sharing an experience from their own environment was priceless. ~Tom Schreiber, CIO, Shasta County
