In recognition of his exemplary municipal leadership, national professional networks and ongoing commitment to public service, City Manager Anthony J. Snipes has been appointed to serve on the Board of the Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS).

“I am incredibly honored to join other national public partners as a part of the IBTS Board, and I look forward to providing valuable insight and guidance from a municipal perspective that will help the Institute improve services and outreach to public partners such as the ‘Show Me City,’” Mr. Snipes said.

IBTS partners with government at all levels to provide unparalleled expertise in regulatory compliance, program and service management, and quality engineering services. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization since 1999, IBTS is committed to helping jurisdictions meet the needs of their citizens with greater agility, efficiency and full transparency. The organization employs more than 300 employees that provide services to local, state and federal clients.

IBTS’s work is guided by a Board of Directors that consists of representatives of five national associations representing city-, county- and state-level governments. As part of the Board, Mr. Snipes will join other elected and appointed officials in informing IBTS directly, providing IBTS with unique insight into the needs, challenges and priorities of the public sector.

“Mr. Snipes has earned many achievements and accolades during his more than 20-year career, including strategic initiatives in public/private partnerships and organizational development,” said Ashok Goswami, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of IBTS. “We are pleased to welcome him onto our Board of Directors and look forward to his guidance as we continue to grow our organization.”

IBTS offers municipal services for local governments, state municipal leagues and council of governments through a Non-Profit Public Partnership (NP3). Many local governments are faced with a variety of challenges, such as budget shortfalls, retiring staff, a lack of certified professionals and data security. IBTS’s municipal service offerings can help remove the burden of these day-to-day challenges from government officials, allowing officials to place a greater focus on the overarching mission of the municipality.

When partnering with a municipality, IBTS conducts a budget analysis to find ways to save money, or use it more wisely, in addition to sharing found efficiencies with the community. Learn more
