Earlier this year, BOMA International assembled a task force to publish a guidance document that would help commercial building professionals prepare for occupant re-entry amid COVID-19. Due to the evolving nature of the pandemic and its continued impact on the commercial real estate industry, the task force reassembled this fall to re-examine the original guidance and develop updated operational and safety recommendations. Getting Back to Work 2.0: Building Re-Entry Best Practices in a COVID-19 Reality replaces the original guidance document released in May and is a framework for developing, updating and executing individual property or portfolio plans and responding to increasing expectations for buildings and workplaces. All sections of the original document have been significantly edited and updated to include new information and suggested best practices for consideration.

Just Released: BOMA International COVID-19 Impact Study

While COVID-19 continues to be a disruptive force for the office sector and its tenants, the perceived value of the office as a key ingredient of business success remains strong. That is one of the major takeaways of the BOMA International COVID-19 Commercial Real Estate Impact Study, a groundbreaking study of more than 3,000 U.S. commercial office space decision-makers commissioned by BOMA International.

Written by global real estate software company Yardi and developed by Brightline Strategies, a leading real estate research and advisory services firm. The study provides a clear indication of the pandemic’s broader transformational effects on commercial real estate and how tenant attitudes towards the in-person work environment have shifted.

 J. Michael Coleman Foundation

 As you know, the incomparable J. Michael Coleman spent more than 30 years with AlliedBarton (Allied Universal), retiring as the VP of Commercial Real Estate in 2017. He was a fixture of the industry, as well as a huge part of the heart & soul of BOMA Philadelphia. He considered BOMA to be his home, and all of us to be a part of his extended family.  His contributions to BOMA are countless, supporting BOMA International and local associations through sponsorships and leadership. He was in the inaugural class of BOMA Fellows, the highest honor awarded by BOMA International, and has served on the BOMA Foundation Board, BOMA Executive Committee, and in many other leadership roles. Locally, he began BOMA Philadelphia’s Safety & Security Committee, which continues to be one of our Association’s most integral and influential resources. This is a small sampling of Mike’s incredible devotion to protecting and advancing our community.
In 2014, BOMA Philadelphia introduced the J. Michael Coleman Member of the Year Award. This award is presented annually to an Associate or Regular listed member of BOMA Philadelphia who embodies the spirit of Mike’s generosity, dedication, knowledge and passion for BOMA and the commercial real estate industry.  A Foundation has been set up in Mike's name to help offset the cost of attending International's conferences for Emerging Professionals.  Go to BOMA.org and click on The Foundation to contribute in honor of Mike Coleman.

J. Michael Coleman Scholarship Fund: The J. Michael Coleman Scholarship Fund was launched by the BOMA International Foundation in 2016 in honor of Mike Coleman who retired after more than 30 years as Vice President of Commercial Real Estate with Allied Universal.  The scholarship supports young or emerging professionals to attend the BOMA International Annual Conference and Expo by providing a complimentary registration and $500 stipend.  The fund supported 7 young professionals in 2017 and 10 in 2018, most of whom have continued their involvement in BOMA; some in leadership positions.  Without your help, the fund will run out of money in 2-3 years.  Visit BOMA International to learn more about the Foundation: https://www.boma.org/foundation
