We encourage you to consult this directory to locate a specific service, product, or office space you need. And please patronize our advertisers, whose support makes this publication possible.

Remember that BOMA events are learning and/or networking events, not selling events. Meet and network with other members and follow up with people that might be interested in your product or service at an appropriate time. Be prepared to cultivate a relationship not a sale. Be a resource to building members.
