Year in re­view

BOMA 2013/2014

Ottawa Business Journal - BOMA Magazine - - President’s Message -

BOMA Ottawa is pleased to re­port that 2013 again proves the need for the Com­mer­cial Real Es­tate in­dus­try to have a voice. Fol­low­ing our suc­cess with the Na­tional BOMA Con­fer­ence BOMEX in Ottawa, we have turned our at­ten­tion to the more rec­og­nized events in our ac­tiv­i­ties list.

As al­ways BOMA hosts its Lunch Se­ries, bring­ing in­ter­est­ing speak­ers to the at­ten­tion of our mem­bers, but more im­por­tantly iden­ti­fy­ing is­sues of com­mon con­cern. This cou­pled with our Ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram of BOMI cour­ses, sem­i­nars and lec­tures help Com­mer­cial Real Es­tate pro­fes­sion­als stay on top of the is­sues that they all face.

On be­half of all BOMA’s across Canada, we again or­ga­nized the Na­tional Com­pen­sa­tion Sur­vey, in part­ner­ship with Hays and we col­lab­o­rated with another large na­tional firm when BOMA and Deloitte pub­lished a study of the im­pact of the Com­mer­cial Real Es­tate in­dus­try on the Ottawa econ­omy.

BOMA Ac­tiv­ity days, have also proved to be very pop­u­lar al­low­ing BOMA mem­bers to in­ter­act, and even raise money for a good cause. In 2013, the Char­ity of Choice for BOMA is the Royal Ottawa Hos­pi­tal.

As 2013 pro­gresses, we find our­selves again part­ner­ing, but this time with other as­so­ci­a­tions and the City of Ottawa on the Of­fi­cial Plan for the City.

BOMA has or­ga­nized a team of ex­perts to re­view all el­e­ments of the Of­fi­cial plan on be­half of our mem­bers and the in­dus­try pro­vide lead­er­ship to­wards hav­ing a more pros­per­ous and well run city.
