Local TOBY Awards: Call for Judges

We are assembling a team comprised of Property Managers, Architects, Design Engineers, and Engineers to help provide a balanced in-person review. Your participation as a judge will help BOMA complete this process, but will also give you the opportunity for a back of the house tour of a spectacular building and a greater insight into our industry. The on-site building judging will take approximately 2 hours .

Please note that participation for more than one category is permitted and encouraged if your schedule permits. Note: Judges will not be assigned to a building that was entered by their company or if they provide goods or services to that building.

If you know of an individual that fits the aforementioned criteria that would be interested in participating as a judge, please feel free to forward this on to them. 

For additional questions please contact Christine Miclat.
