Mission Statement:
The mission of the Building Owners and Managers Association International is to enhance the human, intellectual and physical assets of the commercial real estate industry through advocacy, education, research, standards and information."

BOMA International's advocacy team has achieved many successes so far in 2018, continuing to positively impact the commercial real estate industry and protect our members' livelihood. We gained huge headway in ADA Lawsuit reform with the passage of H.R. 620, the ADA Education & Reform Act. BOMA International's president, Henry Chamberlain, testified before Congress on the importance of the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction (179D). And in June, Congress kept the ENERGY STAR® program fully funded in the FY 19 budget.

Now more than ever, state legislatures and regulatory agencies are poised to impact the commercial real estate industry. Increasingly, "hot" issues often take root in numerous legislatures simultaneously. State and local trends, whether motivated by public officials or private interests, play a larger role in advocacy programs across a wide spectrum of organizations.

To address this growing impact, BOMA International established its state and local affairs program. The Advocacy staff works in close coordination with local BOMA associations to protect members' interests before state and local governments.
