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

It is my plea­sure to wel­come you to the 2015 BOMA Com­mer­cial Space Direc­tory. This pub­li­ca­tion is not only dis­trib­uted by the Ottawa Busi­ness Jour­nal, but is given to del­e­gates at the Ottawa Real Es­tate Fo­rum and dis­trib­uted lo­cally to our City of Ottawa rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Pro­vin­cial MPP’s and Fed­eral MP’s so they can gain some in­sight into the is­sues that we face.

In the 2014 Direc­tory we re­ported how we had reached out to mem­bers to de­ter­mine what they wanted from their As­so­ci­a­tion and in the years to come. This year we will be launch­ing a se­ries of new ini­tia­tives that re­spond to their in­put.

By the end of 2015 we will have launched a new web­site, news­let­ter and bul­letin con­cepts that aim to not only in­form our mem­bers of the ac­tiv­i­ties of BOMA, but to also bring to our mem­bers more news that is im­por­tant to them. We are part­ner­ing with other or­ga­ni­za­tions to bring both lo­cal and na­tional sto­ries that have rel­e­vance to the Com­mer­cial Real Es­tate in­dus­try in Ottawa.

We are also bring­ing new fea­tures to our com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels, in­clud­ing a job op­por­tu­ni­ties sec­tion on the web­site, re­port­ing on mem­ber move­ment and much more in­volve­ment in So­cial Me­dia.

Our par­tic­i­pa­tion in So­cial Me­dia will al­low us to reach pro­fes­sion­als in our in­dus­try that may have not yet de­cided to join BOMA, but it will also tar­get young pro­fes­sion­als that may seek to par­tic­i­pate in BOMA Ed­u­ca­tion ses­sions, or net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Our pro­gram­ming will also change in 2016 with the in­tro­duc­tion of more themed pro­grams to spe­cific groups within BOMA, as well as a new Break­fast pro­gram of top­ics to com­ple­ment the pop­u­lar Lunch Se­ries.

BOMA mem­bers in Ottawa are amongst the most par­tic­i­pa­tory of any BOMA Chap­ter in Canada, and there in­volve­ment in BOMA ac­tiv­i­ties con­tin­ues to be the foun­da­tion on which we build our As­so­ci­a­tion.

As al­ways we hope you find the 2015 Direc­tory use­ful and in­ter­est­ing.
