Committees and Groups

Greater Saint Paul BOMA achievements are largely due to our extraordinary Committee and Group members.  The following Committees and Groups provide the basis by which the organization operates.  Serving on a Committee or Group is not only a great way to get involved, but it is a valuable opportunity to earn Continuing Professional Development Points (CPD's) which are needed to maintain your professional designation (RPA, FMA, SMA). That's right - you can receive six (6) points per year for each Committee or Group you serve on. 

So...what are you waiting for?  Get Involved!  If you are interested in joining a Committee or Group, please email [email protected] or call 651-291-8888 for more information.
