BOMA International supports our communities in a variety of ways; by promoting the efforts made by BOMA local associations in the communities where we live and work and setting an example of the philanthropy and leadership that continues to strengthen BOMA! The purpose of this page is to highlight the great work being done within the BOMA network, and hopefully serve as a source of inspiration for those looking to lead a new community service initiative through their BOMA local association. To share the great work your local is doing, please contact your local BAE to learn how you can submit your information.
Many MAC Locals participate in this, and each one has great ideas on how to support the community in which they work, live and play.

GETTING BACK TO WORK
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.

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.
