President's Message
Welcome to Spring! BOMA Greater Tampa Bay has had a busy first quarter. In January, several of us joined BOMA locals from all over the country in Miami for the Winter Business Meeting with the focus on government affairs and how it affects the commercial real estate business. In March, we joined the other BOMA Southern Region locals in Savannah for great education and a wonderful regional TOBY awards! Join me in congratulating our local winners: Memorial Center I & II for Suburban Office Park – (Low-Rise), Tampa City Center – Earth, and Rocky Point Center – Renovated. Off they go to the BOMA International TOBY Awards in Salt Lake City in June ! We hope you can all join us there to cheer them on.

We look forward to seeing you all on April 17 th for our annual Property Manager Showcase . This is the one day a year where the property managers focus on our allied members. It is a great event and an excellent way to meet new service partners. Property Managers, if you have never participated before, please consider doing so. We cannot manage our buildings without the unwavering work our Allied Partners do.

Now that you have spent the last week watching the Masters, are you ready to show your greatness on a course? Come join us for our 29th Annual Golf Tournament at Cheval Golf & Country Club on May 20 th ! It is always a great event and you do not want to miss out! Go outside and enjoy the weather! The summer heat will be here before you know it!
