Awards & Recognition


 BOMA 360 Performance Program


BOMA 360 is a commercial real estate designation developed by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International that recognizes all-around excellence in building operations and management. The program benchmarks building performance in six key areas: operations and management; security and safety; training and education; energy; environment and sustainability; and tenant relations. Since the program’s inception in 2009, nearly 1,600 BOMA 360 designations have been awarded.

Earning a BOMA 360 designation offers buildings tangible results, measured through higher tenant retention and satisfaction scores, higher rental rates and documented operations and management savings and efficiencies as reported in designee surveys and by Kingsley Associates and CoStar.

Applications accepted daily. The designation is conferred quarterly. 


 BOMA Fellows


The BOMA Fellows program recognizes and honors BOMA International members for exemplary and sustained contributions to the industry, their profession, the community and BOMA at all levels, and is a call to continued leadership and service.  Fellows candidates must be BOMA International members for a minimum of ten (10) years, and must be able to demonstrate achievements in education, industry and business experience, BOMA leadership activities, honors and awards, and community service worthy of BOMA recognition.

 Government Affairs Awards of Recognition (Govies)

 BOMA Honors Advocacy Excellence at Winter Business Meeting​

During the Board of Governors meeting at the recent Winter Business Meeting, BOMA International recognized four BOMA local associations for their excellence in grassroots and issues advocacy through the Government Affairs Awards of Recognition Program, popularly known as the “Govies.”

BOMA/Utah was recognized in the category of Outstanding Ongoing Advocacy Program for developing an active and influential government affairs program that brings political and legislative awareness to BOMA Utah members.

BOMA/Oregon was honored for Outstanding Single Government Affairs Issue for a small BOMA local association for leading the Safe and Livable Portland Coalition. The coalition includes neighborhood associations, nonprofits and local businesses that has worked diligently to find lasting solutions to Portland’s housing and homelessness crisis.

BOMA/Greater Cleveland was chosen for Outstanding Single Government Affairs Issue for a medium BOMA local association for leading a coalition that successfully lobbied for positive changes to a proposed ordinance that would have required unnecessary and onerous façade inspections of buildings.

BOMA/Toronto won in the category of Outstanding Single Government Affairs Issue for a large BOMA local association for having worked with the City of Toronto and Ontario Provincial energy officials to make a mandatory energy benchmarking ordinance more fair and beneficial to all parties and stakeholders.
