Every year, BOMA is out in front providing members like you with the tools and information you need to
turn challenges into opportunities. BOMA is your strategic business partner, offering world-class education
and training; award-winning publications, research and benchmarking data; and federal, state and building
code advocacy that tirelessly protects the commercial real estate industry. In 2018…

BOMA made your voice heard on Capitol Hill, in your state and local government and with code officials.

  • BOMA International defended the ENERGY STAR program from elimination to ensure you continue
    to have access to free benchmarking tools and energy-saving strategies.
  • BOMA International President Henry Chamberlain testified before Congress on the importance of
    making permanent and modernizing the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction,
    commonly referred to as 179D, to offset the cost of your energy-efficient capital improvements.
  • BOMA International’s codes team has continued to protect your interests during the 2021
    International Code Council (ICC) Group A code development cycle. Through BOMA’s efforts during
