Taking a day out of their busy schedules to give back to industry, the BOMA California Board of Directors gathered in Oakland, California, for its first board meeting of 2016.  Policy issues ranging from split role property tax, state energy mandates, changes in ADA law, and parcel tax proposals, and statewide ballot measures were all discussed.

BOMA California is a federation of all eight metropolitan BOMA local associations and serves the collective membership through its mission of “preserving and promoting the interest of California commercial real estate professionals through legislative and regulatory advocacy.”

BOMA California is headquartered in Sacramento and has a full time presence at the Capitol and regulatory agencies. Each local association nominates up to five of its members to represent that association on the BOMA California Board of Directors. Therefore, every BOMA member in California has a voice in the setting of policies of BOMA California vis-à-vis their local association representation on the state association’s governing board.

Officers and Executive Committee representatives for 2016 include:

Deanna Drake-Copelan, President (Oakland/East Bay)

Dave Mastro, Vice President (Sacramento)

Dave Foley, Treasurer (Greater Los Angeles)

Tom Magnussen, Secretary (San Diego)

Brian Harnetiaux, Immediate-Past President (Orange County)

Sandra Boyle, Executive Committee and former-President (San Francisco)

Sarahann Shapiro, Executive Committee (Silicon Valley)

Desiree Lavin Glover, Executive Committee (Inland Empire)


We thank each and every volunteer that serves on the BOMA California Board for their dedication to making the commercial real estate industry successful in California.
