Advocacy

Chair: Susan Engstrom, BOMA Fellow, RPA, FMA | Main Street Real Estate Advisors

Vice Chair: Brett Barendrick | Parallel Capital Partners

 

Mission statement: Monitors, studies, and recommends policy and advocacy strategies on legislative and regulatory matters that affect the commercial real estate industry. A key driver of these policy determinations is to find ways to make our state more economically competitive. Usually, that is in the form of pursuing policies to reduce uncompetitive high property tax rates, supporting incentive tools for job recruitment, supporting efforts to lessen onerous regulation and litigation to our members, and opposing mandated cost increases on the industry. We also want to be responsible corporate citizens by participating in efforts to improve our K-12 education system and to improve our environment and quality of life in the state.

The Advocacy Committee meets throughout the year, most heavily during the state legislative session at the beginning of each year. Early in the year, we also articulate a prioritization of our state and local issues in the form of a printed platform that is approved by our Board of Directors.
