Each year during legislative session, commercial real estate owners and managers travel to Tallahassee to spend a day at the Capitol to discuss BOMA’s stance on issues important to our industry. Having a strong showing from our members at the Capitol sends the message that BOMA is a robust association with the backing of a talented and involved membership. The tentative agenda is as follows
8:30 AM to 10:00 AM – For those who arrive early we will have an informal meeting to discuss agenda, position papers, and key meetings at the Cafeteria on the lower level of the main Capitol Building.
10:30 AM to 12:00 PM – Speaker presentations; meeting location Historic Capitol Museum’s Senate Chamber. Note: Prompt gathering at 10:30 AM is required, as we will be welcoming elected officials as speakers and presenting the Legislative Member of the Year Award.
12:00 PM to as needed – Each contingency of locals to meet with Senators, Representatives, and Aides from their districts. Note: Each local should schedule visits with their elected officials prior to the Advocacy Day Event; it is best to coordinate schedules after January 1st and again the week prior to our event.
We will be hosting a preparation meeting via conference call for all participants on Tuesday, February 7th at 2:00 PM. If needed, the BOMA Florida Government Affairs Committee will host a subsequent preparation meeting at a mutually convenient time for those attending Advocacy Day.
