The TOBY committee solicits building entries for our local competition from BOMA Columbus members. Property managers enter buildings that they believe embody the values and best practices of the industry. The TOBY committee reviews and evaluates all building entries in a two-phase process, which consists of a building tour and management team interview. The Performance 360 program encourages property professionals to participate in the online assessment program, which evaluates properties in six major areas of building operations and management. Properties are evaluated in the following areas:
- Building operations and management
- Life safety/security/risk management
- Training and education
- Tenant relations/community involvement
The TOBY Committee celebrates all the entries in a gala event typically held in December. Local winners are announced and then encouraged to submit to their buildings to the regional competition the following March. Winners in the regional competition go on to compete in the BOMA International competition in June. BOMA Columbus has had several regional and international winners.
