President's Message - Andrea Harvey

  Summer is Tick Season, Happy 4th of July! Fireworks safety month ...

Hello everyone!  As we welcome summer things are definitely different this year, but I hope you are enjoying the outdoors and safely re-connecting with colleagues, family and friends.

BOMA is excited to announce that we will be hosting our Annual Golf Outing in September.  The event will have a new location and format in response to the COVID-19 safety regulations, but our goal is to help members network and have some fun in a safe and responsible manner.  Details will be emailed to you and posted on our website in mid July.

While we have been apart, BOMA has been providing resources to help members with plans for managing buildings and businesses, communicating with tenants and employees, and ensuring the health and safety of individuals as we navigate this pandemic together. This information is available on the COVID-19 Resources pages for BOMA International and BOMA Buffalo. 

The BOMA board and members are here for you. If you need help with anything, please call the office at (716) 856-3801.

I hope you have a fun Independence Day celebration.  We miss you and can't wait to see you again!

Government Affairs


On June 24th BOMA Buffalo joined over 35 New York State organizations with a letter to Governor Cuomo calling for a moratorium on the strict liability of the Scaffold Law. 

Here is a summary of media coverage:

Real Estate Weekly
Albany Business Review
New York Real Estate Journal
New York Construction Report

The moving force of this effort has always been the grassroots support. To engage those supporters, Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York launched a VoterVoice to update those stakeholders and lobbiest interested in this topic.
