January 2019  

President's Report




Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for our tomorrow – Albert Einstein

I would like to thank Betsy Johnson for her past leadership as a board member and as president of our Tucson  BOMA chapter for the last two years. 

We have exciting programs planned for this year and hope to see everyone at our lunch meetings and education classes.  Our first program in January is our Economic Forecast Breakfast on January 29. 2019.  Our program includes municipality reports, market reports and Tucson Foodie along with  our keynote address given by Amber Smith, CEO of Tucson Metro Chamber. 

Our hope for our tomorrow is that we have involvement from our members and we encourage everyone to join a committee.  We want to meet our members needs and a good way to do so is to bring forth new ideas.  If you feel you cannot join a committee and have ideas for programs, education classes or community services,  please reach out to a board or committee member with your suggestions. 

I look forward to a bright 2019 and would like to thank everyone for the opportunity to serve as president of our chapter.
