BOMA NY Launches Proptech Committee

BOMA New York has launched a Proptech Committee.  The 20-member committee’s mission is to keep the CRE community informed on industry trends and new proptech concepts, and to produce events for members to cultivate relationships within the growing sector. 

BOMA NY executive director Lori Raphael, said, “With a holistic focus on property management, the Proptech Committee will dive into operational topics that include carbon neutrality, clean energy, indoor air quality, safety, communications, tenant access, building management systems and automation tools.” 

The committee’s first event will highlight cellular solutions for office buildings, with a focus on the shift in carrier funding for distributed antenna systems.  It’s slated for Nov. 30. 

Matt Duthie, BOMA NY chair, said, “The new Proptech Committee roster is a dream team of operational professionals. I’m confident that the proptech seminars will go beyond the surface of a trend and look forward to learning alongside my industry peers.”
