Why join BOMA you ask? There are plenty of reasons of course but here are my top ten:
  1. BOMA is the industry’s premier source for education, networking and advocacy.
  2. The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards honor the best of the best in commercial real estate – enter to have your building and organization recognized.
  3. Keep up to date on industry news, current market trends, building codes, standards and statistics – stay ahead of the competition with BOMA’s resources.
  4. Network with professionals with similar interests and concerns which can open doors and build relationships.
  5. BOMA Buddy program, each incoming new member is assigned a BOMA Buddy who takes them under their wing. They will introduce the new member to others and help them find their BOMA groove. I have a great one, Gabi Davis and I highly recommend utilizing yours!
  6. Enjoy informative monthly luncheon programs and special yearly events that are focused on commercial real estate. Such as the Annual Golf Tournament on April 28th – have you signed up yet?!
  7. Grow your leadership, team building and time management skills by joining committees and leading projects.
  8. BOMA members receive discounted registration fees and save 20% or more on BOMA guidebooks and reports.
  9. Advance your career and hire the right people using BOMA’s career center and job postings.
  10. Extensive education opportunities, members have several specialized seminars, workshops and designation programs related to commercial real estate available.

Attend the next luncheon, join a committee, and do not forget to network and meet at least one new person! You never know where that connection may lead you. BOMA is an investment in yourself and your company. It attracts well established vendors and management companies and the value you receive from that network and the BOMA opportunities is tenfold.
