The Importance of BOMAPAC

BOMAPAC is BOMA International’s political action committee.  It enables BOMA International’s advocacy team to raise money to re-elect political candidates for federal office who know, understand and support policies that affect commercial real estate.

By contributing to BOMAPAC you are strengthening our industry's voice on Capitol Hill, and there is no better way to support the candidates and the issues that impact your professional and personal lives.  Your contribution, combined with the donations from your BOMA colleagues from across the U.S., will help ensure that BOMA International has the power to back those members of Congress who show leadership and commitment to commercial real estate issues.

Help us to ensure that congressional seats are held by individuals who understand real estate issues and challenges, and can have a positive impact on your livelihood.

All BOMA members, are eligible and encouraged to contribute to BOMAPAC. Locally, there are two great ways to contribute.

  • 50/50 – When you register for an event online, you have the option to purchase a 50/50 ticket for $10. $5 is a contribution to BOMAPAC, and $5 is entry into a raffle. At the Holiday Party one of the contributors is drawn to win all of the raffle entry money! Tickets are also sold onsite at the Holiday Party.
  • Another option, and huge success, which we are continuing from last year is the Golf Ball Drop. You can purchase an entry for a $10 contribution to BOMAPAC. For every $10, you receive a minimum of one ball for the ball drop. At the Golf Tournament, numbered balls assigned to the contributors are dropped from a helicopter above a green. The ball that lands closest to the hole wins $1,000 cash and the opportunity to win the hole in one prize! Buy your entries here
