The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International is pleased to announce the inaugural class of BOMA Fellows. The individuals honored as BOMA Fellows have displayed exemplary and sustained contributions to the industry, their profession, the community, and BOMA at all levels and have continually answered the call to leadership and service throughout their careers.
