Houston BOMA Committees

Becoming part of a committee is a great way to get involved with Houston BOMA. Committee participation provides numerous opportunities for developing and strengthening career connections and leadership development. 

What does a committee do?

While the charges of each committee are strategically set by the association leadership, it is up to the committee members to achieve the annual goals of the committee through teamwork and a collective vision. The work of the Houston BOMA’s committees is vital to the continued success and advancement of the association.

Joining a Houston BOMA Committee

Committee participation is a benefit of membership, so only current members and/or affiliate representatives are permitted to sign up for committee service. In addition, you must be able to commit to make the time commitment to attend committee meetings in person. Committee members who miss two committee meetings are subject to removal from the committee. Committee participation is limited to three years per committee. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee placement on any committee, but we will do our best to find the right fit for each applicant

Houston BOMA committee terms run on the calendar year – from January to December. All committees are set by January 1, however we do occasionally have vacancies come up mid-year. It is strongly encouraged that you apply for any committees that peak your interest. You will be added to a waiting list if there is no space on the committee and you will be contacted as soon as your spot opens up.

Each committee has 10 positions, comprised of seven Members/Affiliate Representatives and three Allied & Professional Members.

BAC PAC Committee
New Committee for 2018!

It’s official, the Legislative Advocacy Committee (LAC) and the BAC PAC are splitting up. You heard it here first!

At its 2018 strategic planning meeting, the Houston BOMA Board of Directors decided that the LAC and the BAC PAC each had enough work that both deserved a dedicated committee. So …. we’re in need of some folks interested in money and politics. The BAC PAC will develop ideas for fund raising to tie in to all existing Houston BOMA events, as well as research and recommend local candidates seeking endorsements and campaign contributions from the BAC PAC. If you are interested, apply using the Committee Involvement Application here..
