Photos provided by Bert Buxbaum, The Living Desert.

More than 250 members and exhibitors attended the California County Information Services Directors Association (CCISDA) Fall Conference, October 27-30, at the The Riviera Palm Springs Resort & Spa.  The theme of the meeting was “Engaging Citizens through Technology.”  WTC Consulting was one of over 60 vendors who participated in the information exchange.

On October 28, WTC hosted a tour of the Living Desert for the attendees.  Established in 1970, The Living Desert has been engaged in the important work of preserving, conserving, and interpreting the desert and all its varied plant and animal life.  Located on 1,200 acres of natural desert land, the facility is home to hundreds of desert animals, including zebras, giraffes, cheetahs, wolves, bighorn sheep, camels, hyenas, ankole cows, ostrich, and many small mammals and reptiles.

Both a zoo and botanical garden, the property features numerous walking trails and abundant desert plant life.  The property includes a world class veterinary hospital and wildlife rehabilitation center.

The cool afternoon found many species roaming around their habitat, and allowed the attendees to take many pictures up close.  Although the giraffe, ostrich, bighorn sheep, and ankole cows were all popular for the photographers, a straw poll showed the cheetah is the most photogenic.

CCISDA Spring 2012 Conference

Last week, WTC Consulting participated in the 2012 California County Information Services Director Association (CCISDA) Spring Conference, themed “Inspire…Imagine…Innovate.”  The event was filled with more than 260 eager and enthusiastic professionals, with 31 counties represented, ready to network and learn new information on the hot topics in the industry today.  Such topics included information security, cloud computing, innovation, and mobility.

The highlight of the show was the Sunday night “Speed Dating” event.  Each county CIO was stationed at a round table and the vendors had 2 minutes to make their presentations to the CIO.  At the end of the 2 minutes, a gong went off and all the vendors moved to the next County CIO at the next table.  This was a very intense and fun way to meet and network with the influential people in the counties.

WTC sponsored the Grand Opening Reception, Sunday night following the Speed Dating event.  At this conference WTC met with friends and new acquaintances, played an excellent round of golf, and enjoyed some good company.  We look forward to seeing everyone at the next event in Monterey.
