April 2018  

President's Report



I was unable to make our tour of the University of Arizona Athletic Facilities, but I have received some great comments from some that attended.  This tour is just one of the ways we try to expand your knowledge.  The other is through the various education and programs that we hold.  The April meeting is a twofer – you get the knowledge of the vendors that are BOMA members as well as the additional knowledge of how to deal with the homeless.  Officer Morken, Tucson Police Department, will be offering additional information and answering your questions about topic.   

We are making an effort to provide you an opportunity for continuing education points and our October class “What is Hiding in your Environment?” was approved by the Department of Real Estate for 3 credit under the Disclosure category.  ATI is presenting and sponsoring the class.  More details will be announced soon. 

Security is an area where there is always something new to learn.  At our May meeting, Allied Universal Protection will be presenting an Active Shooter course.  Please mark your calendar for May 22 and plan for a 1 ½ hour meeting.  Don’t let the time prevent you from coming though.  If you need to leave before the end, we all understand.  Russell Mallette, CPP will be the speaker.  In September, join us for a Self Defense class.  It will be 2 hours starting at 3 p.m. and will be followed by a mixer. 

I hope everyone is having a productive 2018.  The year is certainly moving fast.  Just remember, that knowledge is a wonderful treasure.

Earn a Two Percent Rebate on Your Home Depot Purchases

BOMA members participating in a national rebate incentive program with The Home Depot have earned more than $10 million in rebates to date — more than $3 million in 2016 alone! You can earn money back on your purchases, too. The Home Depot rebate program offers BOMA members a two percent annual rebate on all qualifying in-store and online pre-tax purchases of thousands of products in Paint, Janitorial, Flooring, Plumbing, Electrical and more, plus other special savings and services, such as dedicated support, delivery, competitive pricing and volume discounts.

There is no cost to enroll in the program. Rebates are distributed annually at the end of the rebate period, which runs through February, and annual purchases must total a minimum of $25,000 to qualify. This program is for commercial accounts only and is open to all BOMA members, including associate members.

Enroll now and start earning money on your company’s Home Depot purchases. Be sure to enter the program code BOMA when you register. If you are already enrolled in the program, be sure your account and payment information is up-to-date so that you don’t miss out on any savings or rebates.
