Associate Brown Bagger Recap
The event was held at AO Reed, lunch was provided by Meaghan O'Brien of Commercial Cleaning Systems, and dessert by Ephraim of Ben and Jerry’s Catering. Since I have not been with BOMA for quite a year yet, I thought it fitting to attend the Brown Bagger and help provide some of my own first year experience as a Service Provider.
There were some 30-plus providers and a couple other long term members in attendance. Barry, Ephraim, and I were there representing Membership committee. Most of the attendees were very new to BOMA and were very engaged in the discussion led by Barry. We did a couple ice breaker exercises which got people starting to talk and be more open within the group. Some of the topics discussed were: BOMA buddies, lunch and mixer attendance, and how to become more active, being involved, volunteering on committees, and how to meet other members.
All in all, I felt that the Brown Bagger event was very useful in that everyone benefited from all the feedback and discussions surrounding the BOMA organization, and now they all have a base of BOMA friends from the Brown Bagger group of attendees. Based on the response, we might consider doing this at least twice a year.
