October 17 -19, 2018
Chicago, IL

The BOMA Association Executives (BAE) Council provides a forum for the free exchange of experience and opinions among members through discussion, study and publications. Council members work together to promote the arts and science of association management and to educate the members, local affiliated associations, BOMA International, BOMI and other organizations on the unique characteristics of being a local BAE. Through its meetings and conferences for the mutual improvement and education of members, the council develops and encourages the practice of high standards of personal and professional conduct among individuals serving as a BAE.
