President's Report

It looks like summer is finally here - time for vacations, cookouts, all that fun stuff!  Your BOMA Buffalo staff and officers are NOT relaxing and continue to work hard on events through the summer.  The July regular meeting will be a little bit different format - a building tour starting later in the day with "Happy Hour" type food - more info to follow.

Don't forget the annual Golf Outing at Ivy Ridge on Monday August 20th - we have a hard limit of 144 golfers and spaces are already filling up!  The Golf Committee is also working hard to ensure play moves along and there aren't excessive delays.  The prize raffle format is also changing to speed up the process.  As always, it will be a fun event filled with camaraderie and networking opportunities. Don't Delay - Register Today!

Message from the Executive Director - Jennifer Aiple

There are many exciting events ahead for the summer with BOMA Buffalo.  We hope you are able to join these events as well as the monthly meetings. 

Volunteers are always needed for our committees. We are also still seeking two volunteers for the Secretary and Treasurer positions on the BOMA Board. Ask me how to get more involved.

1.   What is your favorite Buffalo food item and/or restaurant?

It’s hard to choose just one favorite restaurant. Among my top favorites are Sato on Elmwood and Lombardo on Hertel. Can’t go wrong with either one of them, good food and great service.

2.   What is one of your favorite quotes?

"For what it's worth...it's never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be.  There's no time limit.  Start whenever you want.  You can change or stay the same.  There are no rules to this thing.  We can make the best or worst of it.  I hope you make the best of it.  I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you've never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view.  I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you're not, I hope you have the courage to start over again." - F. Scott Fitzgerald

3.  Where is your hometown?

I was born in Olean, NY and moved to Lancaster, NY when I was 9.  

4.   What is the tallest building you have been to the top of?

Probably the Willis Tower is the tallest building I’ve ever been on, but the coolest experience was going to the tallest open air restaurant in the world, Sirocco at State Tower in Bangkok, Thailand.

5.   Where is your favorite place to vacation?

Anywhere I haven’t already been. I love exploring new countries and cultures.
