W. Bruce Clayton, BOMA Utah President’s 2021 Message

Dear BOMA Utah members,

This past year has been a year unlike anything we have ever experienced before. Our Board has been truly impressed with everyone’s flexibility and how you have all risen to the occasions to make the best of the numerous challenges of dealing with a world-wide pandemic. The meetings that our local members put together during 2020 for recommendations on dealing with these challenges have truly been remarkable. We appreciate everyone’s contributions to the meaningful instruction and recommendations provided during this past year for keeping our properties and environments that we work in to be as safe as possible.

Part of what makes BOMA Utah great are our wonderful committees. This is really where all the work for making BOMA Utah successful takes place. We cannot express enough appreciation to everyone who has served on our various committees and encourage those who have not participated on a committee to reach out to Courtney or Lacey for information on what opportunities are still available for the upcoming year. This is a great way to serve the local BOMA Association and network with other managers and vendors. Part of our vision for BOMA Utah is to be united in our commitment to BOMA’s success through active participation. Committee involvement is just one way of contributing to our success and the success of its members.

Being a member of BOMA International also gives you numerous resources in dealing with challenges of the current work climate with recommendations on how to meet these challenges and succeed. BOMA International has also published on its website Best Practices to Work 2.0: Building Re-Entry and Best Practices in a COVID-19 Reality. I would encourage everyone to take a few minutes to become familiar with these recommendations and incorporate them into your plans for 2021.

BOMA Utah continues to strive for excellence. As we move forward into the coming year, we will endeavor to provide safe networking events early in the year until we can meet again in a normal setting. We have missed this and look forward to the day when we will be together again meeting face to face.

On behalf of the BOMA Utah Executive Committee and Board of Directors, we thank you for being a member of BOMA Utah and look forward to this new year and the exciting opportunities ahead of us and for the time we will spend together in our various activities and functions.
