BOMA represents and protects the commercial real estate industry through a robust building codes and federal advocacy program and provides critical tools and information to industry practitioners through education, publications, floor measurement standards, research and benchmarking reports, building recognition opportunities, sharing best practices and trends, and more.
Federal Advocacy and Building Codes
BOMA International advocates on behalf of the commercial real estate industry on Capitol Hill, in states across the country and in federal agencies, and it is the only national commercial real estate association with an active building codes advocacy program. BOMA International also works in close coordination with BOMA’s state and local associations to protect the interests of the industry. BOMA’s legislative, regulatory, and codes victories have protected our members’ livelihood and saved billions of dollars in operating costs. Learn more about BOMA's advocacy and codes work on the BOMA website.
Standards and Research
BOMA International publishes a suite of ANSI-approved standards for measuring space in office, industrial, multi-residential, retail, mixed-use, and gross area, and it is a founding member of the International Property Measurement Standards (IPMS) Coalition. BOMA International also publishes its annual Experience Exchange Report (EER) benchmarking study for office and industrial buildings, as well as other important studies, including Where America Goes to Work: The Contributions of Office Building Operations to the Economy.
The BOMA International Annual Conference & Expo, Medical Office Buildings + Healthcare Real Estate Conference, webinars, and other courses and programs advance the careers of commercial real estate professionals and provide information and tools to improve building operations and enhance asset value. Programs such as Foundations of Real Estate Management and the BOMA Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP) have trained tens of thousands in operational and management best practices with proven results.
