TOBY Judges Training - September 13
CNL Conference Center420 South Orange Avenue
* Registration open until 9/8/23 at 3:00 PM (EST)
Want to be a judge for this year’s BOMA Orlando TOBY Awards?
This is a call for judges for the 2023 BOMA Orlando TOBY Awards. We need industry professionals to judge this year’s local entries.
The Outstanding Building of the Year Award (TOBY) is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry, recognizing quality in office buildings and awarding excellence in office building management. All facets of a building’s operations are thoroughly evaluated during the judging process, including tenant relations programs, community involvement, energy efficiency, emergency preparedness and security protocol, and continuing education for building personnel. Learn more about the TOBYs by visiting https://recognition.boma.org/.
Local judges will evaluate entries and score each building, measuring how well each entry meets the program’s criteria.
All BOMA Orlando members are eligible to be judges. We encourage all members to participate. No previous experience is required.
A TOBY awards judge must:
- Be unbiased, honest, and open minded
- Exhibit a desire to learn and critically evaluate materials as presented
- Provide honest, candid, and knowledgeable criticism – courteously and diplomatically
REQUIREMENTS – non negotiable:
A mandatory judges’ training session for all judges (new and experienced). Judges' training session will be offered twice this month; you must participate in one of these sessions.
Judging will take place the weeks of October 23 and October 30. Due to time limitations, only 2 buildings will be judged on a given day. Not all judges will be needed for the entire three weeks. The days needed for judging will be determined by the final number of building entries received.
NEW THIS YEAR: Because we are required to use the BOMA International portal, there is an online judging portion that must also be completed for a building to be eligible. How to use the portal will be included in our training classes.
The call for judges will close 3 pm, Friday, September 8 so don’t delay!
You will be notified by COB Monday, September 11 if you are selected to be a judge.
Thank you for your willingness to serve BOMA Orlando as a judge for this year’s TOBY Awards.
