Dear Industry Colleagues:
I’m excited to announce that, by a unanimous vote of the membership at the Association’s annual business meeting this month, the Office Business Center Association International will be changing its name to the Global Workspace Association. This change will be represented publicly on or by November 1, 2011.
This is more than just a name change for the Association. Our new name and focus reflects the fact that we represent a growing, dynamic, and progressive industry. Demographics, workspace trends, and changing business buying patterns are pointing to exceptional growth opportunities in our industry. We look forward to working with our members and friends in the industry to advance workspace-as-a-service.
In the coming months, more communication on this transition will follow, and we look forward to working with you as we embark on this change for the Association and the industry.
