CSAC Names New Director of Operations & Member Services
Jean Jordan Has Strong Background in Association Management and Counties
Jean Jordan has been appointed Director of Operations & Member Services for the California State Association of Counties (CSAC), Executive Director Matt Cate has announced.
Ms. Jordan brings a wealth of association and county experience to CSAC. For the past four years she has served as the Executive Director of Administrative Services for the California District Attorneys Association. As part of her position, she was also the Director of Violence Against Women and Victims of Crime Projects. Her career encompasses nearly 15 years of work in three counties: Yolo, Santa Cruz and San Diego. She began her career as an Assistant Public Defender in Yolo County. From there, she served as Executive Director for the Yolo County Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center, which provides a variety of crisis-intervention services for children and adults who are victims of sexual assault, abuse or domestic violence. Ms. Jordan then worked in Santa Cruz and San Diego Counties as a member of the District Attorneys’ Family Protection Units before returning to Yolo County as a Deputy District Attorney.
Ms. Jordan’s volunteer experience is equally impressive. She serves as Board Chair of Fourth and Hope, a non-profit whose mission is to provide a continuum of care for the hungry and homeless in Yolo County. She is also Board Chair of the Yolo County Family Justice Center.
During her four years at the California District Attorneys Association, Ms. Jordan helped to develop a number of new programs, ensured smooth running of operations and worked to enhance member value. Her first day at CSAC will be Monday, October 21.
“We are excited to have an individual with Jean’s experience and skills join the CSAC team,” Cate said. “She understands associations, she understands counties and she understands what is needed to enhance our advocacy and education efforts on behalf of California’s 58 counties.”
