  AUGUST 2016

President's Message

August is suddenly upon us.  For many of us, that means another grueling budget season and increasing traffic as the kids head back to school.  But, there are still a few days of Summer left for us to enjoy.  Don't miss BOMA's End of Summer Mixer at Gordon Biersch Brewery & Restaurant on the evening of August 18th in the Pilsner Room.  I am looking forward to toasting with all of you at this annual event in downtown San Jose.

Go back to school with BOMA, and get on track to earn your RPA designation.  Don Lonsinger, First VP of CBRE is returning to instruct our next RPA course, Leasing & Marketing for Property Managers.  This accelerated course will be held on August 24-27th from 9am to 5pm at the BOMA-SV office.  Quickly gain the skills needed to successfully market and lease commercial real estate under favorable as well as adverse economic conditions, and become a more valuable partner to property ownership by obtaining an understanding of the legal, ethical, and financial components involved in leasing and marketing.

Extra...Extra!  I am delighted to welcome Nathan Donato-Weinstein, Senior Real Estate Reporter from the Silicon Valley Business Journal, to our next quarterly luncheon at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara on September 15th where he will share the latest news concerning Commercial Real Estate.  Find out what Silicon Valley insiders are saying about What's Hot, What's Not, and What's Next for our industry.

The whole world is watching the 2016 Olympics, underway in Rio de Janeiro, and the USA has already clinched 28 medals including 10 gold medals!  At BOMA Silicon Valley, we are kicking off another great TOBY season, which is our version of the Olympic Games.  TOBY (The Outstanding Buildings of the Year) Awards recognize all facets of building operations, including tenant relations programs, community involvement, emergency preparedness, security standards, and continuing education for building personnel.  TOBY Judging will occur in August, and the deserving winners will be honored at our Celebration of Commercial Real Estate luncheon on October 21st at the Westin Sainte Claire.  We will also be announcing the BOMA-SV scholarship awardees and honoring our dedicated Volunteers at this event.

We are in the hottest dog days of the season now, so let's try and squeeze in a few more outdoor concerts, weekend BBQs, and warm beach days before the seasons begin to turn again.
