Results of the Building Energy Challenge coming this Spring
This coming spring we will celebrate the Year 2 performance achieved by participants in the Building Energy Challenge at the competition's second awards gala. It will be an opportunity to discover outstanding buildings in the BEC whose energy-savings projects are very impressive.
As always, our team is working very hard developing a program of activities, presentations and training sessions that we hope members will find useful and inspiring. Our objective is to maintain our leadership as a point of reference in property management in Quebec. In January we will announce what lies in store for the coming months. Consult our website, follow us on social media and check your e-mail so as not to miss out on many interesting activities.
I would like to thank all the members and friends of BOMA Quebec, as well as the Association's loyal partners, for helping to make this past season an impressive success. Your commitment and involvement made all the difference.
I wish all of you an extraordinary holiday period among friends and loved ones, and look forward to seeing you in 2020!
Bruno Turcotte, President
