Join BOMA Columbus for the March Members luncheon focused on the BOMA 360 Performance Program and how property teams can achieve recognition for best-in-class management and practices emphasizing proficiency in property procedures and operations. BOMA 360 is a required stepping stone into the TOBY program and establishes an elevated baseline for building standards from which management excellence evolves at the highest possible level. The BOMA 360 and TOBY programs together achieve validation for excellence resulting in stronger teams, higher tenant satisfaction, added asset value, and optimized operational performance. BOMA International speakers Tyler Kirshner, Director of Building Recognition Programs & Association Services and Susan Hammer will be giving a presentation on BOMA 360. Additionally, following the luncheon, a special Q&A session will be held for anyone interested in obtaining this designation.
