Imagine you are sitting in traffic after another long, hectic but successful day, all those radio news reports are adding a little stress: “Record storms expected this season due to Global Warming” or “High Fire Danger Severe this year due to California’s Drier than Average Year – Is it a Sign of the Times?”

You’re thinking to yourself: “What can I do about Global Warming? It’s all I can handle to do a good job at work and then manage the rest of my life.”

We have great news for you! Just by continuing to do a great job at work (and looking great to the owners and executives you report to) you can personally impact global warming, while lowering your commercial real estate operating costs and raising your buildings’ asset value. How is that possible, you ask? BOMA International has created a series of seminars called the BOMA Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP) to teach you exactly how to use proven low-cost and no-cost techniques to accomplish these goals.

The overall goal of this program is to institute new building standards and best practices that will lower commercial real estate energy consumption in the United States by 30% overall, and to do it using proven management principles that do not require huge capital investments.

Building Owners and Mangers Association (BOMA) San Francisco is hosting these live web-cast seminars which are open to all Californians. We are partnering with other California BOMA locals and the program is sponsored by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s Pacific Energy Center.

Please join us for the remainder of the 2007 BEEP seminars:

Cost per seminar: $99.00 BOMA members, $125.00 Non-members
