Membership in BOMA Nova Scotia offers great advantages to owners, managers and suppliers of the commercial real estate industry in Nova Scotia. BOMA membership encompasses up to 95% of commercial building owners and managers in metro areas, and also includes many of the suppliers and contractors who supply goods and services to these companies.
BOMA members enjoy access to education, networking, publications, resources and advertising through our organization, as well as discounts on our national environmental certification program BOMA BEST®. Educational options include BOMI designation and certificate courses offered right here in Nova Scotia in the classroom, seminars and presentations on industry topics as part of our event line-up, and articles in our various publications. BOMA Nova Scotia also teaches a ‘for-credit’ undergraduate level course at Dalhousie University during the Winter semester.
Networking is an important part of BOMA for many of our members. Our event season from September to June each year offers a variety of ways to get to know other BOMA members and guests, including the annual golf tournament, speaker luncheons, building tours, after work ‘fun’ networking sessions and the popular Holiday Luncheon in December. To see our current event schedule go to our event page. Members are also able to attend two designated luncheons free of charge during the year.
Our members receive BOMA Nova Scotia publications including the E-News distributed every second Thursday, and our Annual Publication SPACES which includes a Leasing Guide for metro areas. Members are also invited to advertise in these publications at special member rates, and can advertise job postings on our employment webpage free of charge.
For owners and managers membership entitles you to substantial discounts for BOMA BEST® certification … save up to 50% on every building you enter. Supplier members may wish to take advantage of our ‘member only’ sponsorship opportunities, which provide a great way to increase your corporate profile within the industry.
Membership in BOMA also helps increase our industry’s strength… together we can advocate more strongly for better resources, education and legislation. To become involved on a Committee or Task Force contact us.
