Beth BowskyBeth Bowsky is the Policy Specialist for Government-Nonprofit Contracting, a role in which she combines her unique blend of nonprofit and government experience to manage the National Council of Nonprofits’ multi-year and multi-faceted program to promote fairer and simpler contracting processes and procedures across the country. She is responsible for mobilizing advocacy efforts through broadening public support for needed policy changes in government-nonprofit contracting processes, publishing reports on best practices and solutions, managing the work of a panel of experts, and expanding a centralized public website for practitioners and researchers. 

Beth brings to the job a passion for convening diverse groups of people from the public and private sectors to expand the capacity of charitable nonprofits to deliver better services and value. Her career in the nonprofit arena, which began while she was earning a degree in social work at the University of Cincinnati, has afforded her with a comprehensive view of the opportunities and challenges that accompany change. As one of the youngest people in Ohio to become executive director of a multi-service, nonprofit agency, Beth learned from the ground up the importance of collaboration and the power of public support, including serving as Chair of Public Policy for the Ohio Association of Child Caring Agencies. Beth’s work as president of her own consulting firm included helping the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund reorganize and streamline collaborative funding efforts in each of the state’s 88 counties. As a National Leadership Consultant for Arlington, Va.-based National Alliance On Mental Illness (NAMI), Beth assisted state organizations across the country build and implement strategic plans for growth, governance, and advocacy, while also serving as a speaker and trainer at state and national conventions. Through shared learning and advocacy, Beth believes that tremendous improvements can be made in government-nonprofit contracting that will benefit all parties.
