Professional Development is critical to anyone in the workforce.

It is often asked what is the importance of continuing professional development and why does it matter?

When you have finished your degree, completed practical experience requirements and started your career, it’s fair to say the first part of your mission is well and truly accomplished.  Sit back and give yourself a pat on the back. But don’t take too long doing it or you’ll be lagging behind your colleagues. The same is true for professionals with many years experience in the workplace.

Continuing professional development is important because it ensures you continue to be competent in your profession. It is an ongoing process and continues throughout a professional’s career.

The ultimate outcome of well planned continuing professional development is that it safeguards the public, the employer, the professional and the professional’s career.

BOMA will be identifying resources, courses and organizing events to assist you in our own professional development. 

BOMA Ottawa Emerging Leaders Network

BOMA Ottawa

BOMA Ottawa would like to introduce members to our new program, Emerging Leaders (ELN). This forum will help engage young Property Managers, Owners, and Service Industry Professionals to provide an opportunity to collectively contribute and develop through events, social media, newsletters and professional development, while providing an introduction to BOMA.

In the months to come, our newly formed Committee, consisting of member companies, will be evolving our goals and objectives, but here are a few;

  • A great opportunity to get to know likeminded commercial real estate professionals (35 & under)
  • Help build key relationships, value of participating with all members of BOMA
  • Further enhance careers
  • Planning, program benefits, recruitment & marketing and finally activities

We are asking Senior Leaders of Property Management Companies and Allied Service Providers to provide this information on to your employees who you believe could benefit from this program.  To have them participate please provide us with contact names and emails, as we will be creating a database of names/companies for the ELN, whereby we can encourage them to participate in upcoming events and education sessions.
