Representing more than 250 downtown office buildings and 160 affiliate companies, the Building Owners and Managers Association of Chicago (BOMA/Chicago) serves as the collective voice of Chicago’s commercial real estate industry. RP has served as the trade association’s agency of record since January 2007. During the last decade, RP has supported a wide range of strategic communications initiatives including issues management, labor communications, member communications and engagement, digital strategies and ongoing organizational positioning for BOMA/Chicago’s leadership.
RP has helped BOMA/Chicago successfully navigate a number of issues impacting the downtown business community, including property taxation, utility rate hikes, special service area assessment, building codes, and emergency preparedness, among others. RP has routinely deployed a wide range of communications tactics to engage BOMA/Chicago’s key stakeholders around these issues, including media relations, social media, collateral creation, grassroots advocacy and more. Through our work, BOMA/Chicago has remained an active and steady voice and the organization’s leadership is widely quoted in local and trade media on issues of importance to Chicago’s commercial real estate industry.
