Building Operators & Engineers Group


About the Building Operators & Engineers Group (BOEG):


BOMA’s Building Operators & Engineers Group (BOEG) was introduced in 2014, with the intent of providing continuing education and networking opportunities for building engineers, operations staff, and trades professionals employed by BOMA member companies. 

BOMA’s mission is to create value for all members of the commercial and institutional building industry. We’re pleased to put together a dedicated offering for this group of building professionals, which includes regular breakfast meetings for our BOEG members to exchange ideas, share knowledge, hear from other industry experts, and participate in building site visits and classroom sessions in pursuit of professional designation and certificate programs.

Operators, building engineers and tradespeople are a critical part of the building management industry. We believe that our B.O.E.G. offering serves BOMA’s mission well, and moves us towards our vision of a prosperous and sustainable buildings industry in Manitoba.


Annual Group Membership Cost (company):


$150 per year (for current BOMA member firms)

$200 per year (for new firms, outside of BOMA membership)
