Through its professional lobbying efforts, BOMA International influences legislation and represents your interests before federal agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Justice Department.

Membership Types and Fees

 

REGULAR MEMBERSHIP applies to commercial property including office buildings, medical buildings, government buildings, industrial warehouses, retail centers and residential buildings greater than 9 floors. Membership is generally held by the Building, but the management company may elect to hold the membership by certifying that dues expense is not borne by the owner.

 

Every Regular Member must have a principal representative. Adding additional representatives is optional and there is not a limit. The annual membership dues payment for one representative is $725 and additional reps may be added for $525 each.

 

There is a special category of Regular Membership called Emerging Professionals, which is designed for entry-level employees in the commercial real estate management field, such as administrative assistant and assistant property manager. The annual dues payment for this category is $250 and members can be assigned to this category for a maximum of two years, after which they would convert to either principal or associate representative status.

 

ALLIED MEMBERSHIP applies to firms who are engaged in a trade, industry or profession allied to the commercial real estate industry (i.e., vendors, suppliers, and professional firms).

 

Membership is held by the Allied company, not the individual. Every Allied Member must have a principal representative, who has voting rights, and may elect to have up to three (3) additional representatives who do not have voting rights. Membership dues for an Allied Member with one representative is $825. Each additional representative added to an Allied Membership is $625.

 

Membership Dues Information

 

Membership dues reminders are sent via email in December of each year with a due date of January 15. Any membership not paid by February 28 is dropped. Once the membership is dropped, any building or company wishing to re-affiliate must start the application process over, including submitting recommendation letters and being presented to the Board of Directors for approval.
