The leaders of BOMA California - including BOMA San Francisco members - recently visited Washington D.C. for BOMA International's Winter Business Meeting and National Issues Conference to take BOMA’s top legislative priorities to our Bay Area lawmakers’ offices.

BOMA California members traversed Capitol Hill with information on the importance of renewing the federal terrorism risk insurance program (TRIA), as well as leasehold, roof and fire sprinkler depreciation issues.

Our California leaders met with representatives from Senator Barbara Boxer and Senator Dianne Feinstein's offices.  In the House of Representatives, our BOMA San Francisco leaders met with Rep. Jared Huffman and Rep. Jackie Speier and a special meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.  Feedback from the meetings has been positive with BOMA’s message about the importance of a strong commercial real estate industry for job growth and economic recovery resonating with most elected leaders.

The Winter Business Meeting and National Issues Conference is an essential advocacy tool that highlights the importance of member involvement at the federal level.  Click here for a synopsis of what took place during the conference.  Please email and if you are interested in attending this event in the future.
