BOMA International's Guide to Building Re-Entry
As we prepare for a phased approach to commercial building re-entry over the coming months, BOMA International has assembled a task force from across North America to help owners and managers address potential building operations and workforce issues. The resulting document, Getting Back to Work: Preparing Buildings for Re-Entry Amid COVID-19 , provides guidance for preparing commercial properties for the safe return of office tenants, additional building personnel, visitors, vendors and contractors, and it identifies other operational and safety procedures and protocols that should be implemented, updated or enhanced as we prepare to live and work in a post-COVID-19 world. The guidance document provides a framework for developing your individual property or portfolio plans.

Give Your Standard Operating Procedures an Overhaul
If this year has taught us anything, it's that property professionals need to be prepared for everything. That's why a well-crafted standard operating procedure (SOP) manual is essential for any successful commercial property. 
Luckily, BOMA International's  Guide to Developing a Standard Operating Procedure Manual   can provide you with the tools you need to optimize your property's policies and procedures and boost performance.
This essential resource includes:
  • Information about what exactly an SOP manual is and how it's used;
  • All the steps involved in creating an SOP manual, from assembling your editorial team to distribution and updates;
  • Detailed descriptions of 18 different SOP sections, including Tenant Emergency Plans, Safety and OSHA Compliance, and more;
  • An easy-to-follow outline format;
  • A comprehensive listing of additional resources;
  • And more!
There's never been a better time to optimize your property's plan of action. And, during the month of May, take 20% off the  Guide to Developing a Standard Operating Procedure Manual . Just use promo code SOP2020 at checkout.
BOMA is here for you.

Over the past few months, the BOMA community has come together to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you are essential personnel, showing up for work under exceptional circumstances, keeping our infrastructure safe and community operational, and many more of you are working from home to help prevent the spread of this virus. By working together, we help keep each other safe.
As a property professional in these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to be a member of BOMA CNY? No other organization can provide you the guidance and expertise you need exactly when you need it to help navigate these uncharted waters.

The power of the BOMA network provides you with the connections you need to local peers who are developing best practices, local service providers who can answer the urgent questions you have and industry leaders who can share their knowledge.

·          BOMA International’s Coronavirus Resource Center has made it easy to find industry-specific critical resources and credible information about how to mitigate the health and business impacts of COVID-19 preparing for building re-entry, an expert analysis of the CARES Act and updates on the latest state and local legislation that are COVID-19 related.

·          BOMA is the industry’s voice in Albany, on Capitol Hill and with government agencies , and your concerns about the Paycheck Protection Program, liability protection during re-entry and pandemic risk insurance have been shared directly with congressional leaders. 

·          BOMA leveraged its longstanding relationship with the Department of Homeland Security to define essential personnel, reinforcing the need for commercial building personnel to provide essential services as part of the nation’s critical infrastructure and ensuring this could continue. 

·          BOMA’s education provides access to timely industry thought leadership through webinars, virtual information exchanges and articles both online and in BOMA Magazine focusing directly on COVID-19 thought leaders.

We still have work to do, but we are deeply grateful to our extraordinary members and the commercial real estate industry.  BOMA is here for you now and in the future, and we wish you continued health and safety until we see each other in person again.
