BOMA Fellows Mission

The Mission of the BOMA International Fellows Program is to utilize the diverse and extensive knowledge of experienced real estate professionals to support and enhance the strategic vision, resources, and programs available through BOMA International for its members at all levels. To accomplish this Mission, Fellows serve as mentors to recruit and develop future leaders, and as speakers, writers, thought leaders, advisors, ambassadors, and advocates for BOMA. Fellows also recruit additional members into the Fellows Program.

The BOMA International Fellows Program, launched in 2011, is among BOMA International's highest honors. It recognizes and honors BOMA 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.

BOMA values long-time volunteers and highly engaged members for their contributions to the industry, the association and the community. The program provides recognition to individuals for outstanding contributions and also provides BOMA International with access to the best, brightest and most accomplished BOMA members to serve in a variety of capacities. The program provides these accomplished individuals with a credential they can proudly use and display and is a terrific forum for actively engaging these individuals in BOMA activities and initiatives.
