BOMA names new member of the year.
The award was conferred on him on Friday, April 30 at BOMA-MAC's Regional Conference at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.
Presented by fellow New Yorker Steven W. Ford, Chairman-Elect of BOMA International and past a Regional Winner himself, the award honors Grima's dedication and contribution to both the trade organization and the profession on a whole.
In order to be eligible for competition at the Regional level, the professional must first win at the local level, which Grima did this past February as the BOMA/NY Pinnacle Award Winner for Outstanding Local Member of 2003-2004.
Working tirelessly for the advancement of BOMA/ NY and the industry on local, state and federal levels, Angelo J. Grima has built an accomplished reputation as one of the most active and driven members of the Association.
In recent years, he has lobbied extensively for industry interests in Albany and Washington DC, and been a key force behind the International Building Code adoption process in New York City.
While maintaining a demanding position as Portfolio Manager for Grubb & Ellis Management Services, where he is directly responsible for the 2.4 million-sq.ft. NYU portfolio, Grima also dedicates himself to a number of BOMA/NY initiatives, including the Codes & Regulations Committee, the 9/11 Fund Committee, membership on the Board of Directors, and by serving as Secretary of BOMA/NY.
As a result of a policy change, the buildings named this past February as Pinnacle winners will advance to the BOMA-MAC Regional competition in 2005.
The policy change, which streamlined the written portion of the local competition and encouraged greater participation, enables the winners to have more time to prepare their TOBY (The Office Building of the Year) submissions, which are among the most complex and comprehensive competitions of their type.
BOMA/NY is the greater New York area Association of BOMA International, with approximately 865 members active in all areas affecting the industry--from continuing education to advocacy to codes & regulations updates.
In recent years, BOMA/NY has become an increasingly influential voice at City Hall, the State House in Albany and in Washington, DC, lobbying for various issues.
