We are excited to add this electronic service to help the Edmonton CRE community stayed informed about BOMA advocacy, luncheons, networking and educational events. This eNewsletter will be sent out quarterly and we invite you to become a regular reader of the publication and solicit your input for articles or information you would like to see featured.
BOMA Edmonton was established in 1982 with a handful of members when Edmonton’s population stood at 551,000 people. Those founding member organizations saw the value in BOMA’s tenets of advocacy, professional development and networking. Currently, with north of 1 million people in Edmonton Metro, BOMA Edmonton with over 360 corporate members is one of 11 locals in BOMA Canada and one of 18 countries that are affiliated with the 96 local associations in BOMA International. Collectively, BOMA Canada’s 3100 members manage over 2.1 billion square feet of commercial real estate. Today, over 90% of Edmonton’s office space and between 70% and 80% of non-owner occupied retail and industrial space is owned or managed by BOMA Edmonton members. And a 2015 BOMA Edmonton study on The Economic Impact of Commercial Real Estate in Edmonton revealed that CRE contributed $6.2 Billion to the City’s GDP.
Governed by a Volunteer Board of 14 Directors, BOMA had over 170 opportunities for members to connect in 2016. With a total of 5,700 registrations for luncheons, professional development and educational offerings, industry breakfasts, building tours, connecting events, the Awards Gala and of course the ever-popular Golf Tournament, BOMA’s staff of 2.5 were kept very busy. On top of that, over 80 volunteers participating in 15 committees attended north of 75 meetings to carry out the Board’s Strategic Plan of being … Edmonton’s voice of commercial real estate.
