President's Report

It looks like summer has flown by too quickly....we hosted our annual golf outing at the Links at Ivy Ridge on Monday, August 20th.  We filled our hard limit of 144 golfers, and great golf, sunshine, prizes and food rounded out the day.  Thank you for joining us to support your local BOMA association and Camp Good Days!

We are looking for members to fill seats on our dynamic BOMA Board or Directors.  If you would like to learn more about Board opportunties, please call Jennifer @ (716) 856-3801.  The call for nominations will be emailed this month.

A reminder:

Advocacy

The US Supreme Court vs American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME)

The US Supreme Court ruled that non-members cannot be forced in certain states to pay fees to unions representing public employees such as teachers and police, shutting off a key union revenue source.  The 5-4 ruling overturned a 1977 Supreme Court precedent that had permitted these so-called agency fees, which have been collected by millions of workers who opt not to join unions in lieu of union dues to fund non-political activities such as collective bargaining.
