The Houston Building Owners and Managers Association (Houston BOMA), the premier commercial real estate association for Houston, represents the interests of the Houston office building industry. Membership includes 197 commercial offices, institutional and public buildings and 68 companies that provide commercial building services. The Association plays a vital role as a trusted leader in fighting for fair and justifiable taxes, fair regulation, enhanced energy efficiency and sustainability practices, emergency preparedness, along with streamlined and cost-effective government.
Commercial building owners, property managers, engineers and vendors form the nucleus of BOMA members and are privy to the benefits of legislative advocacy, networking events, educational seminars, and social gatherings. The Association advocates on behalf of over 320 million square feet of commercial real estate in over 2,200 buildings in the Houston area. By protecting the interests of the owners and managers of these buildings, Houston BOMA also supports the businesses that are housed in them--businesses that require quality office space and quality service.
