The Middle Atlantic Conference of BOMA assists Locals and their members  maintain strong networks, advocates for the industry, provides educational opportunities and helps members succeed in the real estate industry.  

It is with great sadness and regret that we inform you of the passing of Kayte Faux, Senior Property Manager with

SSH Real Estate.   Kayte had a career in commercial real estate that spanned decades. She was a long-time member and

dear friend of BOMA Philadelphia, and an avid supporter of the association’s programs and mission.  Kayte was a past

BOMA Board Member, a past Suburban Committee Chairperson, and was very actively involved in both the Community

Involvement and Scholarship Committees. The impact of her contributions will be felt within the BOMA community for

many years to come.  Our deepest sympathy is with Kayte’s family, friends and colleagues. All of us at BOMA Philadelphia

will miss her tremendously.


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.
