Taking a day out of their busy schedules to give back to industry, the leaders of BOMA California Board of Directors gathered in Oakland, California, for their first board meeting of 2014. Policy issues ranging from state energy mandates, to changes in ADA law, and property tax proposals were discussed, and direction was set for our representatives in Sacramento.

BOMA California is a federation of all eight metropolitan BOMA local associations and serves as the collective membership through its mission of “preserving and promoting the interest of California commercial real estate professionals through legislative and regulatory advocacy.”

BOMA California is headquartered in Sacramento and has a full time presence at the Capitol and regulatory agencies. Each local association nominates up to five of its members to represent that association on the BOMA California Board of Directors. Therefore, every BOMA member in California has a voice in the setting of policies of BOMA California vis-à-vis their local association representation on the state association’s governing board.

Officers and Executive Committee representatives for 2014 include:

Brian Harnetiaux, President (Orange County)

Deanna Drake-Copelan, Vice President (Oakland/East Bay)

Mike Hansen, Treasurer (San Diego)

Dave Mastro, Secretary (Sacramento)

Desiree Lavin Glover, Executive Committee (Inland Empire)

Sandra Boyle, Immediate Past President (San Francisco)

Cybele Thompson, Executive Committee (Greater Los Angeles)

Sarahann Shapiro, Executive Committee (Silicon Valley)

We thank each and every volunteer that serves on the BOMA California Board for their dedication to making the commercial real estate industry successful in California.
