Manager, Membership & Special Events
BOMA Edmonton has three types of committees: Board, Industry and Association, and Special Events. Our committees are comprised of up to eight BOMA members who volunteer to support the work we do. They act as advisors, making recommendations to the board and association, which in turn make final decisions. BOMA Edmonton also has five membership advisory councils that correspond with BOMA membership types. These advisory councils help to inform committee, board, and association work. BOMA’s board and committees can create short-term task forces or ad-hoc committees to address particular issues or drive initiatives with board approval.
If you are interested in a BOMA Edmonton Committee or a Membership Advisory Council, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You must be a BOMA member to join. If you are employed by a BOMA corporate member, then you are a BOMA member.
Commercial real estate (CRE) is an industry comprised of people who provide, manage, and service the non-residential spaces that make up our cities and towns.
In other words, commercial real estate supports the development, operation, maintenance, sale, and management of any property used for business-related purposes. Subsectors in commercial real estate, as they are often referred to, include office, retail, industrial, medical, multi-family, investment, and other areas of commercial real estate used or zoned for specific purposes.
