BOMA Chattanooga's Advocacy Mandate from your 2017 Advocacy Chair, Dan Levan
BOMA Chattanooga (Southeast Tennessee) seeks to maintain an effective advocacy arm in order to protect the best interests of a growing commercial and industrial real estate industry. The viability of commercial and industrial real estate in the Southeast Tennessee depends on developing productive relationships with elected and government officials, as well as keeping association members informed about and engaged with political happenings throughout the state of Tennessee and at the local level within the greater metro Chattanooga area.
During 2017, BOMA will be inviting local politicians to join us at our monthly meetings. This will give them time to tell our members what is happening in their communities and us opportunity to have a dialogue on issues pertaining to our core business. Since BOMA Chattanooga serves the 9 counties region (Bledsoe, Bradley, Hamilton, Marion, McMinn, Meigs, Polk, Rhea, and Sequatchie), we will target to have city and county officials at each monthly meeting to dialogue with regarding your expansion expectations and what issues they could resolve to provide a health and robust business environment.
Additionally, BOMA Chattanooga will reach across the community to other associations with related membership to expand member’s resources.
If you have any questions on BOMA Chattanooga Advocacy issues, have solid information you believe would benefit fellow members, or know state officials that would benefit from joining us at a monthly lunch, please contact Daniel LeVan, your 2017 Board Member serving Advocacy needs.
