California JPIA Recognizes Milestone Anniversary for Administrative Assistant Lyndsie Buskirk
Administrative Assistant Lyndsie Buskirk, familiar to many members as a front-line representative of the Authority both on and beyond campus, commemorates a milestone anniversary—five years of full-time service—this month.
“Lyndsie is not only an informed professional and a principled colleague, but also a local government champion who genuinely enjoys working with public agencies,” said California JPIA Chief Executive Officer Jon Shull.
Buskirk first joined the California JPIA staff as a part-time, temporary employee in October 2014. She earned a full-time position as an Office Assistant in July 2015 and was promoted to Administrative Assistant in December 2019.
Providing support for both executive and administrative operations, Buskirk manages services involving sponsorships and event logistics, and she is an important driver of the development and publication of the Authority’s marketing initiatives, including the monthly newsletter, email campaigns, and social media. She also assists CEO Jon Shull and Administrative Programs Manager Tammie Haller with planning, outreach, and constituent relations.
“Interacting with and serving our members is my favorite part of working for the Authority,” said Buskirk. “I hope to continue advocating for and building our growing network of members.”
Despite COVID-19 altering the landscape of conferences, with many events transitioning from in-person gatherings to digital platforms this fall, Buskirk remains a publicly prominent agent of the Authority, upholding relationships with similarly minded organizations that support municipal agencies in California. She has been a key representative to the California City Management Foundation, California Contract Cities Association, California Society of Municipal Finance Officers, and League of California Cities, as well as the Municipal Management Association of Southern California.
“Lyndsie is a reputable steward of the Authority to partner organizations and at professional conferences throughout California,” said Shull. “Attending events such as the Municipal Management Association of Southern California’s Women’s Leadership Summit, Winter Forum, and Annual Conference, she embraces every opportunity to learn and to exchange ideas with our members.”
“It is an honor to be one of the first faces that members and prospective members see,” said Buskirk. “I am grateful to support the Authority’s commitment to our members, which sets us apart from other risk management resources.”
Buskirk, who holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from California State University, Long Beach, joined the Authority from Beverly Hospital in Montebello. She previously supported special events and corporate partnerships for Special Olympics Southern California.
