In 1908 the National Association of Building Owners and Managers was organized. The 1979 membership form of the local affiliate group stated, "Most lines of business discovered years ago that it pays to organize. The office building business was one of the first to demonstrate the value of collective thought and action." In 1969 at the annual convention of the organization, the name was changed to BOMA International.
