Code of Ethics

Adopted by the Building Owners’ and Managers’ Association of Philadelphia, April 13, 1920, with subsequent revisions.

  1. No member, regular, asset or associate, or representative of a member shall conduct activities in a manner that is detrimental to the industry. This includes, but is not limited to, misleading claims or untrue statements, whether with respect to sales, rentals, space location or services. Nor shall any member by act or word, try to depreciate the rental or selling value of another member building, or another member company.

  2. No member, Regular, Asset, Facility, Associate, or representative of a member shall use the BOMA/Philadelphia name in soliciting business, or in any way which would imply endorsement of their business activities by the Association.

  3. No member, Regular, Asset, Facility, Associate, or representative of a member shall use the name of another BOMA/Philadelphia member in soliciting business, or in any way which would imply endorsement of their business activities by that member, unless written consent has first been obtained from the proper party or parties.

  4. Members shall do whatever is in their power to encourage fair and just treatment not only among themselves, but as between them and their tenants, and also as between them and such other persons with whom they do business including competitive vendors.

  5. The Board shall determine the corrective action for any infraction of these rules by any member, which corrective action shall consist of a reprimand, suspension or expulsion. The action of said Board shall be final, subject to the right of an expelled member to have the question of expulsion brought up at the next regular meeting of the Association, after being notified of said expulsion, upon making written request therefore to the Secretary.
