BOMA Advocates For You
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. BOMA International's president, Henry Chamberlain, testified before Congress on the importance of the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction (179D). We gained huge headway in ADA Lawsuit reform with the passage of H.R. 620 in the House, the ADA Education & Reform Act. And in June, Congress kept the ENERGY STAR® program fully funded in the FY 19 budget.
2018 Legislative Priorities:
BOMA International’s advocacy team works in close coordination with BOMA’s state and local associations to protect the interests of the industry and share the latest information from across the country.
BOMA International's member-driven Industry Defense Fund is instrumental in giving a voice to the commercial real estate industry and helping achieve critical advocacy successes. Its purpose is to ensure that adequate funds are available at the federal, state and local levels for wide-ranging advocacy issues that impact BOMA members.
BOMAPAC is BOMA International’s political action committee. It enables BOMA International’s advocacy team to raise money to re-elect political candidates for federal office who know, understand and support policies that affect commercial real estate.
