SCHAUMBURG -The Building Owners and Managers Association of Suburban Chicago (BOMA/Suburban Chicago), is known for developing educational programing to meet the current needs of the industry and their members.
In keeping with its mission, to serve real estate professionals working in the commercial real estate industry through effective leadership, advocacy, education, professional development, the organization created Industrial 101, a workshop designed to delineate key differences between managing industrial properties and office properties, as well as provide a basic outline for industrial management.
After the inaugural offering in 2012, the workshop has been redeveloped into a 3-part program.
Industrial 101 will focus on “Why Industrial?”... Why do developers, investors, brokers, tenants, and even property managers, like industrial properties. Two future sessions will address “Building Components” and “Operations and Management.”
The workshop will be on Wednesday, June 5 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the BOMA/Suburban Chicago offices in Schaumburg, and is open to property professionals involved in industrial property management.
Fee for BOMA/Suburban Chicago members is $25; nonmembers may attend for $50. Pre-registration is required; deadline is May 24. For more information,  contact BOMA/Suburban Chicago at 847/995-0970 or A registration link is available on their calendar at
