| WELCOME | BOMA PRESIDENT’S WELCOME The Building Owners and Managers Association of Sacramento is the re- gion’s leading advocate for the commer- cial property management industry and provider of professional-development opportunities, networking events and philanthropic efforts. I am honored to be BOMA’s board president this year, and our leadership team has put togeth- er some incredible events and educa- tion opportunities for 2019. We hope you will join us at an upcoming event or training — please visit our website at www.bomasacramento.org for more information. Our 2019 charitable organization is the Firefighters Burn Institute, an organi- zation committed to establishing a local burn-treatment facility; providing recov- ery programs for burn survivors; pro- viding fire and burn prevention through public education; funding education for burn-team professionals, firefighters and burn survivors; and supporting burn treatment and rehabilitation research. We will be raising funds for this import- ant charity at events such as BOMA’s Annual Golf Tournament on June 6. In addition to fundraising for local char- ities, BOMA Sacramento is focused on sup- porting the legislative efforts of statewide and national political action committees to ensure our voices are heard at all levels of government. Issues including Americans with Disabilities Act “drive-by” lawsuits and split-roll tax significantly impact our industry, and it is our priority to communi- cate these issues to our membership. We feel that the success of any as- sociation is directly correlated to the engagement of its members. We are grateful for the many BOMA Sacramen- to members who make up our volunteer committees and are always looking for additional participation. Let us know if you would like to join a committee — there are multiple opportunities that fit different interests and availabilities. BOMA Sacramento is committed to enhancing the professional lives of our members, and we look forward to seeing you at a future networking opportunity!
