Help BOMA and BOMI Shape the Future Education & Training Programs - Plus You Could Win $500

We need your help!

BOMA International and BOMI International have been collaborating on a groundbreaking Job Task Analysis for the role of Property Manager that is specific to the commercial real estate environment. The purpose of the study is to capture today’s job responsibilities, and to outline the knowledge, skills, and training property professionals need to excel in their current roles. Ultimately, this will help our organizations develop future education and training programs to meet the needs of CRE practitioners throughout their careers. We truly believe that no one is better qualified to define and lead the future direction of property management education than you.

To finalize and validate the commission’s work, we’re asking you to complete a 25-30 minute survey. The survey is being hosted by our independent consultants, the Workplace Learning and Performance Group. Your responses will be 100% anonymous.

In addition to a chance to win a $500 gift certificate, all participants will receive a promotional code for savings on a BOMI International course. Read more.

BOMA 360 Performance Program

The BOMA 360 Performance Program sets the standard worldwide for operational best practices in the commercial real estate industry. For building owners and managers who want to help their properties stand out from the crowd, there is no clearer mark of excellence than achieving the BOMA 360 designation.

Earning the prestigious BOMA 360 label demonstrates that a building is outperforming the competition across all areas of operations and management. It also translates into measurable savings and operational efficiencies, as well as higher levels of tenant satisfaction. 

As the BOMA 360 program continues to expand around the globe, more and more properties are reaping the substantial benefits and significant return on investment that the designation offers, an unmistakable edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
