Join BOMA
BOMA Columbus is the most influential professional organization representing the commercial real estate industry. Our organization gives you the resources to ensure professional development.

To apply for membership please send an email to info@bomacolumbus.org.

BOMA Columbus keeps it's membership ratio at 51% property managers to 49% associate or vendor members.  As of August 2017 there is a 3 year wait list for Associate/Vendor applicants.  (There is never a wait list for Property Managers however applications must be submitted.)  If you are a Vendor and would like to be placed on the wait list please email BOMA Columbus to request an application.  The date your application is received is the date we will use as your order on the wait list.  Associate/Vendor applicants may bypass the wait list by bringing in a new property manager with them as a new member as this keeps the ratio intact.  Please email the BOMA office for more information.

Please note BOMA recognizes one member per company.  If more than one person from a company would like to attend and participate in BOMA Columbus then an additional membership is required. This pertains to any membership category.    

To apply and join as a Building Owner the owner's business must be in managing and or owning commercial real estate.  Those that are owner occupants of a building are only considered if that is their only business.  For example a landscape company that owns their building and operates their landscape business out of that building would be considered for Vendor membership and not as an owner membership.  Their primary business is landscaping not building ownership.
