The Work of the BOMA Foundation

The BOMA Foundation has been an innovative force throughout much of its history, benefiting the industry and blazing a path to a better future.

Among his many contributions to the BOMA community, Mike served on BOMA International's Executive Committee and the BOMA Foundation Board. The mission of the J. Michael Coleman Scholarship fund is to support young and emerging professionals in their careers and in their involvement in BOMA.
