Since 1996 when the first Board of Directors was elected, the Community Software Consortium (CSC) has empowered Massachusetts local officials to not only update their departments’ technology solutions, but to also own and control these new systems. The result has been high quality software, excellent support, and nominal cost. The CSC was set up under M.G.L. 40, § 4A, a statute providing for interlocal purchasing agreements. As a result of changes in the strategic vision of the Commonwealth, the CSC has been disbanded and all member communities have converted to commercial solutions.
A big thank you to the CSC Board of Directors who have spent countless hours over the years supporting and leading the membership.
