This year marks the San Diego Building Owners and Managers Association’s 50th anniversary. Since its inception, BOMA has set the standard for the commercial real estate industry.
BOMA San Diego is the largest local professional association devoted exclusively to the office building industry. We have more than 300 members representing all facets of commercial real estate, including property managers, facility managers, owners, asset managers, engineers and leasing brokers. Combined, these individuals represent more than 56 million square feet of office space in San Diego.
Promoting advocacy, education and networking, BOMA offers various programs to members throughout the year.
·BOMA’s advocacy program primarily works on a local level to represent BOMA San Diego members by maintaining an active communications program targeted to key government agencies.
·Commercial real estate professionals look to BOMA as a leading source for industry education. BOMA San Diego offers a variety of education programs to fit the needs of building owners, mid- to senior-level management company executives, corporate facility managers and onsite personnel.
·BOMA’s many networking opportunities include our monthly membership meetings, networking seminars and numerous special events that include the BOMA Sundowner, golf tournament, Day at the Races and our annual Winter Gala and TOBY Awards ceremony.
This year, BOMA San Diego has the honor of hosting the 2013 Every Building Conference & Expo at the San Diego Convention Center. From Sunday to Tuesday, BOMA San Diego will be entertaining the 93 other BOMA locals from across the country. Participating in trade shows, education sessions and more, BOMA San Diego has worked tirelessly to ensure that this convention runs smoothly and most of all, is fun. Our team at BOMA San Diego has planned a Welcome Party aboard the U.S.S. Midway on Sunday for convention guests. Here, we will celebrate BOMA's 50th Anniversary in true San Diego-style.
As BOMA San Diego president, I would like to sincerely thank all of our members who have made the last 50 years so successful and memorable. Every board member, committee chair, committee member and volunteer has played a part in shaping such a wonderful commercial real estate association.
Happy 50th anniversary, BOMA!
