The 2016 election results ushered in over 50 new faces to Capitol Hill, a new presidential administration and a new era of single-party governance. Those elements make this a unique time in history for large, vast-reaching legislation to move quickly. BOMA members must have their voices heard early in order to matter!
Traditionally, BOMA hosts its biennial fly-in, the National Issues Conference, on even numbered years in conjunction with the Winter Business Meeting. For 2017 we felt the changing landscape of Capitol Hill was important enough to host this additional event for the first time.
