The future of the commercial real estate industry will be shaped by the next generation of property professionals—those who are just beginning their property management careers. If this sounds like you, I’d like to personally invite to you to apply for the J. Michael Coleman CMCP Scholarship.
This scholarship program supports those who are looking to grow in their careers by pursuing the Certified Manager of Commercial Properties (CMCP) certification. I highly encourage early-career professionals to apply before the September 1 third-quarter deadline. The scholarship was established in honor of Mike Coleman, BOMA Fellow, a champion for emerging professionals who retired from Allied Universal after more than 30 years in commercial real estate.
For more information about the J. Michael Coleman CMCP Scholarship and the application process, please visit the BOMA Foundation website. To those of you who are just starting your careers in the exciting world of commercial real estate, I wish you the best of luck in all of your current and future endeavors!
Kind regards,
Henry Chamberlain, APR, FASAE, CAE

I hope everyone is continuing to do well. I’d also like to share with you some new resources that you may find helpful. Please feel free to share any of these resources with your members.
The Road Ahead: Entering Our New Normal is a special issue of CRE Insight Journal and contains an expansive range of topics. From exterior maintenance and landscaping to online learning and communications changes due to COVID-19. In this issue, experts in the field provide innovative and engaging insights on a wide range of issues facing the CRE industry. This special issue is not about looking back or returning to what we once were. It is about moving forward and forging a new path. It is about taking the knowledge we have gained over the past few months and applying it to a newer, brighter future for the industry. (When viewing the digital issue on a mobile device be sure to use full screen view and, to take advantage of interactivity, use a long finger press to activate links.) 

We have also released an article on Being a Successful Virtual Trainer, which is a useful resource for members or others who are facilitating webinars and other online programs. Another recent article provides useful time management tips: Not Enough Time in Your Day? Time Management Strategy Tips

Finally, we’ve also posted a recording of a BOMA Georgia webinar titled The Future of Sustainability in Response to COVID-19. In the webinar, Nancy Larson, LEED AP O+M with Envision Realty Services and Becca Rushin with Jamestown led a presentation on new standards to look out for and new ways for companies to think about sustainability over the next few months. 

I hope these resources are helpful for you and your members.
