Building Management Hawaii - February/March 2012 - (Page 6)

Associations BOMA President’s Message Happy New Year from BOMA to you and your families! 2012 is finally here and my tenure as BOMA Hawaii President has officially commenced. Due to the high standards previous presidents have set through their vision and leadership, I take the reins with anxiety and trepidation. My father always said that it’s always easier to fill a position when your predecessors were substandard… and this is clearly not the case. I’d like to formally thank 2011 BOMA President, Ray Marquina, for nominating me to be his successor. His leadership and guidance were invaluable to my training in how best to serve our BOMA family and on what lies ahead. Of course it would be unjust if I did not mention the hard work that our Association Executive, Nicole Nako, puts into BOMA. Thank you so much Nicole! BOMA would not be where it is today without your hard work behind the scenes. As you all know, we rolled out our first ever annual sponsorships, so I’d like to give special thanks to all of our 2012 Sponsors: Platinum – ABM Family of Services, Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing, Hawaiian Building Maintenance, Mitsubishi Elevator, Standard Parking and Tropical Roofing & Raingutters. Gold – Chelsea Group, CommonWealth REIT, Honolulu Disposal, Kawika’s Painting, Securitas Security Services and ThyssenKrupp Elevator. Silver – Central Pacific Bank, Island Controls, Seal Masters of Hawaii and Servi-Tek. I look forward to a great year working with all of you, our sponsors, and continuing the success that we are accustomed to. I hope that all of you take the time to appreciate what BOMA brings and get involved to make this an even more valuable organization. Have a great year!
