BELTSS Announces Retirement of Executive Director Randy Snyder

The Minnesota Board of Executives for Long-Term Services and Supports (BELTSS) has announced the coming retirement of Randy Snyder, its long-time Executive Director, on July 6.

Randy notes, "It has been a great career. I value and honor the daily work of our long-term care Administrators in the field, including my first 20 years as an LNHA and the last 22 years with the Board. I've had the great privilege of working alongside tremendous staff in daily operations and enjoyed so many talented, supportive board members that made this journey great. I share my sincere appreciation for your daily work. You impact so many Minnesotans' lives… daily. We are blessed to have so many quality leaders throughout Minnesota."

Snyder reflected on the past twenty years of (BENHA and BELTSS) board activities: “I was fortunate to have twenty years of experience as the administrator at Ostrander, Springfield, and St. Paul before working at BELTSS… I’ve been fortunate to serve in various roles at the national and state level, attempting to blend public safety with common sense administrator solutions.”

He also offered his "sincere appreciation for the collaborative work and the pleasure of working with some great people on this journey."

A job posting for the BELTSS executive director position is provided through the State of Minnesota. An announcement will be posted at within three weeks. Board Chair Jennifer Pfeffer has appointed a hiring committee with a target date of July 6 as a transition date.  

LeadingAge Minnesota has appreciated Randy's dedication to Minnesota seniors and providers over his years of service. His leadership through rules promulgation for the licensing of Assisted Living Directors and implementation of this new category of professional licensing has significantly impacted senior care in Minnesota for years to come!
