On to the Next Chapter For David Liebler
June 17, 2021
For almost a quarter of a century, the California County Family has enjoyed the communications prowess and leadership of our very own David Liebler. With tremendous gratitude, appreciation, and more than a bit of sadness, we report that David’s chapter with CSAC is coming to a close with his retirement on July 2.
Throughout his tenure with CSAC, David has directed the organization’s communications and member services, including media relations, communications, event planning, and member services responsibilities. As a result of his countless contributions, CSAC has transformed its advocacy communications and member services to include video production and social media, improve efficiencies, provide member satisfaction, and advance County priorities at all levels of government. He played a fundamental role in both establishing the CSAC Challenge Awards and growing The CSAC Institute into the premier county continuing education institution it is today. His wittiness and personable presence invigorated Annual Conferences and staff meetings alike.
Over the years, David has amassed an exhaustive knowledge of California’s Counties, Supervisors, elected officials, and Association history. In fact, spending time in the field, meeting members of the County Family, and telling their stories were among the highlights of his career. He has media trained and interviewed hundreds, if not more, of Supervisors, county leaders, and local residents in order to tell the County Story to the world.
That storytelling ability and communications expertise garnered David and CSAC local, statewide and national recognition. His accolades include numerous awards from the Sacramento chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators—of which he is a past president, the California Association of Public Information Officers, and the National Association of County Information Officers.
Prior to CSAC, David was the Senior Associate and Media Director at James Burchill & Associates and past editor of the Woodland Daily Democrat. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Davis.
As his CSAC chapter ends, David plans to start a new chapter with several writing projects and bucket-list travel to Major League Baseball stadiums across the country with his sons.
CSAC’s Officers, Executive Committee, Board of Directors, and the entire Association Staff wish David a long, healthy, and fulfilling retirement.
Members of the County family who wish to share their fond memories, photos, and best wishes to David are encouraged to contact Sara Floor for instructions on signing a virtual greeting card that will be presented to David on his last day.
