VENTURA, Calif. — David J. Sasek, director of the County’s General Services Agency, has been elected president of the County General Services Association (CGSA), after serving as the association’s vice president for the past year.
“The CGSA promotes professional development among CGSA membership counties,” said Sasek. “We act as a forum for sharing knowledge and information, and we’re involved with legislative matters that are of common interest to the association.”
The association provides conferences that foster the free exchange of best practices with the ultimate goal of providing effective county public service delivery, including facilities management, real estate portfolio management, fleet operations, energy and sustainability, procurement, and more. Ventura County GSA is an active member of the organization, which is an affiliate of the California State Association of Counties and a network of General Services professionals from counties in California and Nevada.
Sasek’s duties as president include coordinating and hosting quarterly meetings and an annual statewide conference for member county General Service agencies and departments. The events are intended to facilitate networking and collaboration and to share best practices; learning opportunities; strategic planning and Lean Six Sigma; and new innovations in the field.
Sasek succeeds Sonoma County General Services Department Director Caroline Judy, who has served as the association president for two years and will continue to function in an advisory capacity as a member of the CGSA board of directors.
