The Municipal Information Systems Association of California (MISAC) was founded in 1980 out of a need for collaboration and data sharing. The organization consists of three chapters: Central, Northern, and Southern, while also offering informal and formal sub-regional specialization. The chapters are managed by regional boards which gives them greater influence in their respective regions. Our membership includes IT professionals from cities, towns, public safety, special districts and other local governmental agencies/districts. The MISAC State Board of Directors manages the direction of the association as a whole via our state bylaws and Four Pillars.
- Further the understanding of beneficial impact of management information systems in municipal and special District organizations.

MISAC strives to promote leadership, education, and access to resources for local agency technology professionals in order to enhance local government services and effectiveness via its Four Pillars: education, member resources, relationships, and advocacy.
