Federal Advocacy

BOMA International advocates on behalf of the commercial real estate industry on Capitol Hill, in states across the country and in federal agencies. BOMA furthers the industry’s legislative and regulatory agendas by actively working with lawmakers and government officials to advance issues most important to its members.

As in-person lobbying starts to resume, and in preparation for the Winter Business Meeting & National Issues Conference, the federal advocacy team produced this short video to help guide you through the process of setting up and conducting meetings with your legislators. From sending meeting requests to strategic lobbying campaigns, this is a great resource to promote your business and BOMA International in both state houses and on Capitol Hill. Please reach out to Sam Lopez, Director of Federal Affairs, at slopez@boma.org with any questions for any resources you may need as you lobby for the commercial real estate industry.
