BOMA California is a federation of eight metropolitan Local Associations within California, and serves as the collective membership’s legislative and regulatory advocate. Each Local Association nominates up to five of its members to serve on the BOMA California Board of Directors. In January, Meissner Jacquét’s very own Senior Portfolio Manager, Kristin Howell, was elected to President of BOMA San Diego for 2014. Kristin’s seat as President on BOMA San Diego’s Board of Directors allows her to have a direct voice and impact in the setting of policies of BOMA California.
The first week in February, Kristin, along with BOMA San Diego’s executive committee members, had the opportunity to travel to the BOMA International Winter Business Meeting and National Issues Conference in Washington DC to represent BOMA San Diego, to meet with other BOMA affiliates and share ideas in an effort to become better building operators, and to have a positive impact on the commercial real estate industry and San Diego’s economy.
Both local and national issues facing the commercial real estate industry were discussed. The BOMA International Political Action Committee (PAC) is an important defense for the commercial real estate industry and funds have been utilized locally at BOMA San Diego. A current example is PAC’s contribution of $40,000 towards the current fight against the Linkage Fee issue in San Diego.
Meissner Jacquét is proud to have Kristin represent our company, BOMA San Diego, and the commercial real estate industry, and we congratulate her on her leadership role as President of BOMA San Diego.
