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, more than 1,400 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. First quarter 2017 deadline is March 3, 2017.  First quarter 2017 renewals are due March 31, 2017.​

BOMA International Honors Advocacy Excellence

During the Board of Governors meeting at BOMA International’s Winter Business Meeting in February, four BOMA state and local associations were recognized for their excellence in grassroots and issues advocacy though the Government Affairs Awards of Recognition Program, popularly known as the “Govies.”  The entries highlight the creative initiatives designed to strengthen commercial real estate’s voice at both the state and local level.

BOMA/Utah was honored in the category of Outstanding Ongoing Advocacy Program for a medium BOMA local association for developing, in recent years, a very active and influential government affairs program with several important functions. ​

BOMA/Georgia was chosen as the winner in the category of Outstanding Ongoing Advocacy Program for a large BOMA local association for demonstrating an innovative use of technology to inform members of advocacy initiatives. 

State association BOMA Ohio won in the category of Outstanding Single Government Affairs Issue for successfully saving the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit for property owners and developers who take on challenging historic preservation and redevelopment projects. ​
