About BOMA California

BOMA California is the premier voice and resource for Commercial Real Estate advocacy for our members.

The mission of BOMA California is to preserve and promote the interests of our members through legislative and regulatory advocacy in collaboration with other industry leaders.

We serve as a resource for educating legislators about the impact of legislation on our members and educating members of our local associations about the statewide issues that affect them.

Each Local Association nominates up to five of its members to serve on the BOMA Califonia Board of Directors. Additionally, every local association is represented in the leadership of the Association via an elected officer’s position or seat on the Executive Committee. Therefore, every BOMA member in California has a voice in the setting of policies of BOMA California.

The BOMA California Board of Directors meets three to four times a year in different locations around the state. The Association’s budget is funded by dues and assessments from each metropolitan BOMA, based on each Association’s proportional share of statewide BOMA membership. Meetings are duly noticed and agendized. The Board has empowered the BOMA California Executive Committee to make certain decisions when necessary between regular Board meetings.

BOMA California was created in the 1980’s when representatives from several metropolitan BOMA’s found themselves in Sacramento at the same time, testifying on the same legislative issues affecting the commercial real estate industry. In an effort to have the industry speak with one unified voice, in a cost efficient manner and with greater authority, the leaders of several of the local associations decided to create BOMA California.

To date, BOMA California has been effective on a wide variety of issues including forced access by telecommunications companies, energy deregulation, split roll property taxes, mandatory statewide fire sprinkler retrofit requirements, toxic mold liability, enhanced disabled access requirements, and much, much more.
