Five BOMA State and Local Associations Honored with “Govies”
During its annual Winter Business Meeting earlier this month, the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International honored five local and state associations for excellence in grassroots and issues advocacy through the Government Affairs Awards of Recognition Program (the “Govies”). Each year, BOMA International’s State Government Affairs Committee acknowledges the outstanding work of BOMA state and local association volunteers in advocacy and education through the awards program. Govies are bestowed in three categories: Outstanding Government Affairs Committee, Single Government Affairs Issue and Single Government Affairs Program or Seminar.
In the category of Outstanding Government Affairs Committee, two Govies were awarded. Receiving the award for best small association was BOMA Utah for its impressive growth during the past year as it fully embraced the opportunity to lead the local commercial real estate industry by increasing advocacy activity. In particular, various members of the Government Affairs Committee attended state hearings and met with state legislators to defend the rights of property owners and managers against proposed changes to the commercial real estate industry.
