My fellow MISAC members are my first resource to turn to for challenges beyond my expertise. MISAC also provides a way to connect with people more experienced in my profession and gain advice on any challenges.

MISAC’s value is especially high for those entering municipal IT from a different IT industry. When I first started in local government IT, the MISAC distribution list and annual conference were an enormous help in getting up to speed on the tools and brands unique to municipalities. In the years since, MISAC has provided an array of perspectives on policy, technology approaches and business goals. It has been great to hear from people I agree with and disagree with, so I could wrestle to find which combination of ideas will fit the users I serve.

--- Philip Titus, City of Novato

MISAC is an amazing well of knowledge and experience, and it has had a profound effect on my career and on technology at the agencies where I have worked for the past 15 years. The information derived from MISAC has influenced many decisions in many areas; a few examples include software/hardware selection, policy development, staffing needs and troubleshooting.

The network of MISAC people is fantastic—they are the most helpful, collaborative people for whom you could ever ask. It is so wonderful that people share information freely, from the highly technical, to the administrative, to topics that do not even have much of an IT nexus. If someone knows something that can help, then he/she will give willingly.

I have attended most of the MISAC annual conferences (I have only missed a couple since I started going in 2002) and the information sharing on the listserve is amazing.
