2019 K.E.E.P. Awards

Recognizing excellence in effective emergency preparedness planning. These commercial office building awards are presented at the annual Commercial Awards Celebration in June.

Developed in 2016 by the AOBA's Emergency Preparedness Committee, the K.E.E.P. Awards program is designed to encourage AOBA-member commercial property management teams to have effective emergency preparedness plans in place, and to recognize excellence in this critical arena.  Nominations for this program focus on emergency preparedness planning for commercial office building teams in the Washington, DC metro area.

K.E.E.P nominations are due by March 22, 2019 and judging occurs in April by a panel of industry veterans.  All engineer nominees will be honored at the Commercial Awards Celebration on June 13, 2019.
