BOMA International's dynamic volunteer leadership is not only made up of four elected officers and an elected Executive Committee, but it also includes the voices of all BOMA local associations through a 119 member Board of Governors.
BOMA International is looking for leaders like you!
Volunteers are the driving force behind BOMA International. Your association’s strength and stature are a direct result of the commitment of those who volunteer to serve their colleagues and the entire commercial real estate industry. Why not take your involvement—and your career—to a higher level? Here is your chance to help shape the strategic direction of the organization and give back to your industry, all while sharing and growing your leadership skills. Become a candidate for BOMA International’s Executive Committee to the Board of Governors.
Interested individuals who meet the criteria must submit the following for the Nominating Committee’s consideration:
A completed online application to indicate your interest.
A cover letter stating you are a member in good standing and your intent to step forward as a candidate. Be sure to include the seat for which you are applying – officer position descriptions can be found here, and Executive Committee member descriptions can be found here.
The letter should highlight your reasons for stepping forward as a candidate, the qualities, skills and experience that make you an ideal candidate for the position you seek and how you see yourself benefiting from the experience.
A professional resume detailing your BOMA-related activities, along with your local, regional and international participation. We recommend dividing your experience into two sections on your resume: your work experience and your BOMA experience.
A letter of support from your employer or partner on company letterhead, supporting your candidacy and stating they understand the time commitment for the position. If you are the employer, your letter of intent will suffice. Please provide your employer a copy of the position description so they are familiar with the position and time commitment for which you are applying.
A letter of support from your BOMA local association supporting your candidacy.
Three additional letters of endorsement (no more than three, please) from BOMA International members familiar with your BOMA activities. Please provide the endorsers with a copy of the position description so they are familiar with the position for which you are applying.
Note: Be sure to check if your endorsers have already endorsed others. The Nominating Committee will only accept up to two letters written by the same endorser for more than one candidate. Current BOMA International officers or members of BOMA International’s Nominating Committee cannot provide endorsement letters.
A high-resolution photo (300 dpi or at least 1MB in size).
At a minimum, Items 1, 4 and 5 listed above must be submitted by the deadline. Once submitted, each candidate will receive an email confirmation of receipt. Any remaining items should be submitted as soon as possible and will be accepted after the deadline.
