UPCOMING EVENTS... Fall Free Seminar: Increasing Conflict Competence

Compete in the 2018 TOBY Competition!

Tools to Resolve Unchecked Conflict in the Commercial Real Estate World THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2017 In our culture, “conflict” often carries a negative connotation. When two or more people are gathered into a group, conflict exists. A certain level of conflict and tension are required for an organization to grow and indicates a healthy exchange of ideas and creativity. However, unchecked conflict can result in employee / tenant dissatisfaction, reduced productivity, poor service to clients, and increased chance of litigation based on claims of harassment. In short, unchecked conflict can lead to a toxic environment. SPEAKER: Mark Morris has almost 30 years of experience in business working to help teams stay together, become more engaged, and get stronger. He is currently the Talent Acquisition Manager for Kinetix, a Recruiting, Staffing, and HR Consulting firm for high growth companies. BOMA Georgia Members: FREE | Non-members: $99 | $10 Late Fee for member registrations after Sept. 22 l Non-members $109 for registration after Sept. 22.

The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in buildings and rewarding excellence in building management. During the competitions, all facets of a building’s operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and “green” policies and procedures. Are you thinking about entering 2018 TOBY competition?

When beginning my second career, I knew that transitioning from manufacturing into the real estate industry, would come with some challenges. I needed new skill sets. The Commercial HVAC program was the answer.

Through involvement with the Foundation, you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the commercial real estate industry.

The work of the BOMA Georgia Foundation would not be possible without the support of our generous donors. Whether a donation is made by a company or an individual, every contribution is vital to the Foundation’s mission of advancing real estate education and research.

Produced by the inaugural class of CRE Leadership Masters Program participants, the BOMA Georgia Foundation Family 5K is a family-friendly walk organized to raise awareness and funds to help advance real estate education and research.
