About Us

BOMA St. Louis

The Building Owners and Managers Association of Metropolitan St. Louis is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit trade association.  Established in 1911, we are composed of more than 300 members owning or managing more than 40 million square feet of office, industrial, retail and institutional properties in the St. Louis region. 

Members are owners and managers of commercial office and other commercial buildings or provide goods and services to the industry.  We are dedicated to providing local and regional industry information, state and local advocacy and educational programming.  BOMA's efforts in the public policy arena save building owners money through the early notification of and representation on issues that could impact their building's or company's bottom lines.

BOMA is a bottom up organization, which means that each local BOMA association operates under its own by-laws and Board of Directors.  BOMA St. Louis has one paid staff member and a Board of Directors of 17 real estate professionals who seek to protect and promote the best  interests of our members.
