HOW TO JOIN

The Association attempts to maintain a balanced ratio of Regular members, consisting of Property Managers and Owners, and Associate members such as vendors, contractors, suppliers, etc. Membership approval for Associate members may be delayed if the preferred ratio is not being met. Associate members may bypass the ‘waiting list’ by joining with a Property Manager or Building Owner. Anyone who is not a property manager or a building engineer, click ‘Vendor Waiting List" tab to the left to be added to the waiting list.

Property Managers and Building Owners are granted membership status immediately, after the conditions of membership below are met.

Associate Membership Service provider or a vendor membership dues are $765. Additional people from the vendor firm would pay $650 each.

Waiting List

There is a waiting list in order to keep our ratio of property managers and service providers (vendors) 50/50 but If you are able to bring a non-member property manager to join you can avoid the waiting list. The property manager cannot have an existing membership with another person in their firm already (ie: Stiles Property Management, CBRE, Taylor Mathis, Avison Young, WellTower, etc). Ask your commercial property manager clients if they know about BOMA and have them call the BOMA office (561) 395-6664 if they are interested. If they join, you can too.

We also offer twice a year, early spring and early fall, an offer to by-pass the waiting list with a $2600 sponsorship (this does not include the member dues for one person).  If you are on the waiting list, you will receive an e-mail outlining the different sponsorships and what each one offers in the way of brand recognition and exposure.

Existing vendor members only An existing associate (vendor) member firm can add an additional associate member ($650), if they pay for an additional regular ($450) member or additional corporate member ($311) from an existing firm, without having to wait on the waiting list.  It is up to the member to find a property manager, assistant property manager or building engineer to bring in with you. Please contact with the BOMA office first to make sure that they qualify and that another member has not already paid for their membership.
