BOMA Foundation Education Committee
The Committee's Purpose...
Education is a BOMA Greater Dallas core value and part of our slogan “Advocacy. Education. Networking.”. The Education Committee (EdCom) deliberates and decides the education designed for professional enhancement throughout the Association Year. The Committee determines topics, format, location, speakers / presenters, and budget for each of educational offerings.
This is also the Committee that develops, oversees, and manages the education scholarships. Each year, the BOMA Dallas Foundation awards approximately $10,000 to Commercial Real Estate professional to continue their education growth in the industry.
Although, we build an education component into almost every event, the Education Committee plans, creates, designs, manages, and works eight annual Education events each year which are usually focused on hard skills. The Committee also assists with determining the BOMI designation / certifcation course offered each year.
These events also provide a source of non-dues revenue for the association / foundation and a forum for Allied Members to reach Real Estate Members.
Events planned for 2023-2024 include: Ethics course, Design I course, Holiday Breakfast, and State of the Healthcare Market. To learn more about the Education Committee's scheduled events, click the corresponding event graphic below.

Education Committee Waitlist!
**Although Members can sign up for as many Committee Waitlists as you choose, Board Policy limits all Members to serving on only one Committee or Council at a time.
Because of the high demand, if your name is on a Committee Waitlist and you decline to join that Committee when invited, you move to the bottom of ALL Committee Waitlists.
Thus, only add your name to the Committee Waitlist(s) on which you truly would like to serve.
Education Committee Chair
The Committee Chair is responsible for the overall leadership and management of the Committee. Though a Committee Chair may appoint Committee Members to oversee particular tasks or certain events; all tasks, events, and responsibilities of the Committee ultimately are the responsibility of the Committee Chair.
Committee Chairs also prepare all meeting agendas, run all meetings, manage the annual Committee budget, and ensure that all Committee responsibilities are being addressed and fulfilled.
The position of Committee Chair is considered a high honor in BOMA and is thus considered a BOMA Leader.
Committee Vice Chairs assist Committee Chairs to complete their duties and step in for the Chair when the Chair is unavailable. Vice Chairs are the heir-apparent for the role of Chair the following year; though, such appointment is not guaranteed.
