BOMA/Suburban Chicago is seeking submissions from Regular members to participate in BOMA International's 2017 Conference and EXPO, which takes place from June 24-27 in Nashville, TN. The winning entry will receive travel accommodations, as well as a paid conference registration, including the TOBY Awards Banquet, to enjoy the vast array of educational and networking opportunities BOMA International has to offer. 

Why Attend the 2017 BOMA International Conference & EXPO?

At the BOMA Conference you'll find inspiring keynote sessions, important networking events, along with a variety of targeted education sessions that offer fresh approaches, practical direction and tactical strategies for optimizing asset values, embedding sustainability initiatives into operational practices, honing leadership skills, cultivating next-generation talent, and much more! 

All programs offered at the conference qualify for RPA, FMA, SMA, SMT, CPM, ARM, and CCM renewal and continuing professional development credits. Some sessions also qualify for the continuing education credits required for real estate license renewal in many U.S. states and Canada. Some sessions are approved for GBCI continuing education hours for LEED designations. Choose from over 40 expert-led sessions in the following educational tracks:

The TOBY Awards Reception and Banquet, which honors the industry's most deserving owners and property management teams, is an elegant evening in which Regional TOBY winners are recognized for their achievement in front of colleagues and friends. The International TOBY winners will be announced for the first time, live at the event. Two of our very own BOMA member buildings - Windy Point II and Arboretum Lakes - will be in attendance and receiving recognition for winning the 2017 Regional TOBY Awards this year!  

While you may be miles away from Chicago, you'll see some friendly faces if you attend the conference. Several of our vendors and members will be in attendance, along with BOMA staff. You will be sure to see someone you already know. In addition, all BOMA/Suburban Chicago members in attendance are invited to join us for dinner at a local restaurant on Monday, June 26
