BETHANY INCREASED OUR VISIBILITY AMONG LEGISLATORS AND KEY STAKEHOLDERS AND ACTIVATED OUR MEMBERS INTO A HIGHER LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT
“In 2019, we launched a major legislative effort and needed a seasoned grassroots strategist. Snyder Strategies did not let us down. Bethany jumped feet first into our campaign with passion, dedication, and a wealth of ideas.
Bethany is an organized, results-oriented, positive thinker. She increased our visibility among legislators and key stakeholders and crafted a grasstops movement for our organization that helped activate our members into a higher level of engagement.”
— Christopher Maricle, Executive Director
BETHANY HELPED US BUILD POWER AND ENSURE WE CAN CONTINUE TO PROVIDE CARE TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST IN COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT CALIFORNIA.
“Over the past few years, California health centers identified the need to intentionally grow our political power in a coordinated way across the state. Nearly 7 million patients rely on us for their primary, mental health, and dental care, but we haven’t had the tools or systems to engage them in our advocacy efforts.
Bethany created a three-year advocacy plan that gave us a clear roadmap for how to grow our network of advocates, allowing us to build power and ensure we can continue to provide care to those who need it most in communities throughout California.
Even more – Bethany’s passion for grassroots advocacy is contagious, bringing joy to the work, and keeping us energized in moving towards our goal.”
— Laura Sheckler, Director of Community Affairs, Community Clinic Consortium, and Co-Chair of CPCA’s Consortia Policy Group.
OUR MEMBERS COMMENT ON THE POSITIVE
CHANGES WE ARE MAKING
“Working with Snyder Strategies is exactly what MSSA needed. After years of struggling to redesign our public policy and advocacy program, we just weren’t able to engage our membership of over 3,000 health and human services professionals in a meaningful way.
After working with Bethany, we walked away with a three-year roadmap and are well into the first year. Every month we continue to check items off the roadmap and as we do so more and more of our members are commenting on the positive changes we are making! We would definitely work with Bethany again!”
—Christina Zeise, Executive Director
BETHANY LEVERAGED OUR MEMBERS’ EXPERTISE AND CONNECTED THEM TO THEIR STATE AND FEDERAL LAWMAKERS
“Nonprofits will find Bethany Snyder the advocacy strategist and creative spark they need to lead effective advocacy initiatives!
Redwood Community Health Coalition retained Snyder Strategies to oversee our advocacy program and Bethany served as our Advocacy Director from 2018 to 2020. She proactively navigated our state and federal policy priorities and communication, as well as applying her unique brand of enthusiasm and pragmatism to engage our health center members, staff, and key stakeholders in our advocacy efforts. With endless energy, she focused on leveraging our members’ expertise and connecting them to their state and federal lawmakers - especially during a very challenging time for the health care sector.
Bethany is skilled, fun, and focused on results. We highly recommend Snyder Strategies if you are looking for a true nonprofit advocacy expert.”
— Teresa Tillman, former Cheif Operating Officer and interim Executive Director
BETHANY HELPED US CRAFT A VOTER EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY INITIATIVE FROM START TO FINISH
“In 2020 Doctors of the World developed a pilot advocacy campaign with the support of Snyder Strategies. With limited to no experience conducting advocacy campaigns, Bethany helped us to strategically craft a voter education and advocacy initiative from start to finish and worked with us step-by-step along the way. We were grateful for this invaluable support and the confidence that it gave us to try something new that would expand our reach and advocate for something so important to our organization.
We believe that with Bethany's insight and guidance we were able to create a lasting campaign in a short amount of time and we were extremely happy with the results.”
— Lucy Paez Stelzner, MPH, MS, Program Director
As a new team embarking on strategic planning, we reached out to Bethany Snyder to facilitate our discussions and keep us on track.
"Bethany’s energy is contagious, and she propelled our team forward effectively and efficiently. Bethany made a concerted effort to learn about the complexities of our team, which allowed her to effectively pinpoint areas for future relationship building and assist with identification of key stakeholders. She was not afraid to ask us difficult questions that allowed our team to clarify our direction and focus our priorities for greater impact.
We would jump at the opportunity to work with Bethany in the future."
