Texas BOMA Statewide Advocacy Day 2019
February 19-20, 2019 in Austin, Texas
Come. Participate. Influence.
One of the most important activities of BOMA Texas is our involvement in the legislative and regulatory process. Statewide Legislative Advocacy Day is one of our best opportunities to communicate real estate legislative concerns in a unified fashion to our State Representatives and Senators. Registration is now closed, but stay tuned for details on future events. We look forward to joining Texas BOMA members in Austin for this exciting day of legislative advocacy!
Getting There and Parking
The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Austin is located at 303 W 15th St, Austin, TX 78701. Get directions from Google Maps here. The Capitol is approximately 3 blocks from the hotel, so you can either walk or drive.
Parking will be available in the parking garage on 16th and Guadalupe. Enter the garage on the West side of Guadalupe right past 16th Street – there is a Stream Realty leasing sign on the side of the garage. Take a ticket as you enter and bring it with you.
