BOMA/Suburban Chicago announces the winners of the 2020 Local TOBY (The Outstanding Building of the Year) Award competition. The TOBY Awards honor the best of the best in commercial buildings. Building management teams were first announced at BOMA/Suburban Chicago's Holiday and Awards Lunch on Wednesday, December 4, which was held at Carlisle Banquets in Lombard.
Through the prestigious TOBY Award program, BOMAs around the world recognize properties that exemplify outstanding quality and management practices. Winning the TOBY Award not only sets a building apart from others, but it is a true testament to the commitment, hard work, and dedication of the property management teams.
BOMA/Suburban Chicago is proud to announce four local winners this year. Judges thoroughly examined the entrants’ buildings by conducting a detailed property inspection and thoroughly reviewing their online entry portfolios, which included criteria such as in-depth descriptions of their community impact, tenant relations, energy conservation, emergency preparedness procedures, among others.

Recently, a few of our Emerging Leaders SIG members had a great time putting together these gorgeous donation boxes to place at member buildings as a way to collect additional items for The Harbour, our 2019 charity.
These donation boxes are a great way for our members to show additional support for our charity and get their tenants and visitors involved.
If you would like to have one of these these beautiful donation boxes placed in your lobby or other common area, let us know. Our Emerging Leaders will do all the work for you! A member of the group will personally deliver the box to your building and collect the donated items when it's full. You don't have to do anything except spread the word to your tenants! It's that's simple.
For more information, please contact Barb Turbett.
Be sure to attend our September Members Lunch where a panel of experts--including two HR representatives, a fashion stylist, a senior-level property manager, and an Emerging Leader--will weigh-in on what the models are wearing, provide information on dress code policies, and offer their own personal experiences on fashion in the commercial real estate industry. You don't want to miss this action-packed Members Lunch!
