The Building Owners and Managers Association of California (BOMA California) is a federation of all eight metropolitan BOMA local associations and serves as the collective membership’s legislative and regulatory advocate.  The mission of BOMA California is to preserve and promote the interests of California commercial real estate professionals through legislative and regulatory advocacy.

Each of the eight California local associations name five members to represent them on the Board.

BOMA is all about advocacy for the commercial real estate industry, whether before board of supervisors, the California State Legislature, state agencies like the State Fire Marshal’s office or the Public Utilities Commission, or the U.S. Congress.

The board held a high level discussions regarding the upcoming legislative session, upcoming regulatory battles, Political Action Committee activity, and heard from former Bush Administration Official, Ruben Barrales (current CEO of GROW Elect) about what the potential impact of California officials aggressively pushing back against the new Administration in D.C.

The Board meets three times a year, maintains a legislative, regulatory, and energy committees, and holds regular conference calls to provide direction on policy and political activity to our advocates in Sacramento.
