President's Report




"However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope."  Steven Hawking on Never Giving Up

This quote reminds me of the University of Arizona Athletic Department.  They have had many accusations and scandals in the last year.  Yet, the basketball team is in another NCAA Tournament after winning the PAC 12 Championship.  This past weekend both the Softball and the Baseball teams won their games.   The athletes have concentrated on the things they can succeed at.  Their facilities are some of the best in the country, which is why we are offering you the opportunity to tour them.  This month’s meeting is a tour of the Lowell Stevens (End Zone) and Richard Jefferson Gym. 

Next month, join us for our Western Trade show.  Our speaker is Officer Morken to follow up on how to deal with the homeless.  This topic is challenging and something we all deal with every day.  The trade show is always fun and with the Western theme, we could have a horse show up.  Just kidding, I don’t think the hotel will allow the horse in.  This is an opportunity to get to know the business behind the Associate Members.  Principal member please make sure you attend as a thank you to the Associates that sponsor so many things for us.

I want to thank Deb Bryant, Sunrise Properties, for sponsoring our class on Association Law.  The class went over Association Documents and how to deal with collections.  Jason Smith and Kaycee Wamsley with Carpenter, Hazlewood, Delgado & Bolen provided us with a copy of Condo & Planned Community Statutes in Arizona as well as wonderful laminated summary of the statutes.  It was very interesting and I learned a few things like the difference between a planned community and a condo.    

More education and fun meetings are on the horizon.

Participate in the 2018 EER Surveys

Benchmarking your commercial property against others in BOMA International’s Experience Exchange Report (EER) can save you up to 3% each year on operating expenses. The first step to achieving these savings is sharing data from your building or portfolio with this year’s Office EER or Industrial EER survey.

Participating in the 2018 EER surveys unlocks a number of valuable benefits to help you improve your building’s performance, from priority access to and discounts on 2018 report subscriptions to a free top-level Market Snapshot—and much more.

Any commercial property can submit prior-year income and expense data to the 2018 surveys, regardless of whether or not the property is owned or managed by a BOMA member. The online submission form allows most respondents to finish in about 30 minutes, but there’s no need to complete an entire survey at once. Save your answers as you go and return to the form as many times as needed before the March 30 deadline.

Remember: All data submitted is kept in strictest confidence, and only market-level information is published.
