The SSA Vision and Mission
Everything we undertake and accomplish – we do for the viability, success, and prosperity of those who have made an investment in self storage. We do this through responsive leadership, proven advocacy, relevant education, timely and accurate data, and the effective use of communications and social networking.
It shall be the Mission of the Self Storage Association (SSA) and its subsidiaries to become the world's premier not-for-profit trade organization representing the best interests of the self storage industry. The Association shall be the industry's foremost communicator as well as informational and educational resource to its membership, the general public and the news media.
Specifically, the Association shall labor diligently to enhance the business viability of its members and to expand the industry through promotion of the usage of self storage. Also, the SSA shall strive to advance public awareness of the industry and to enhance the image of the industry in the eyes of the general public, government, the news media and our residential and commercial customers.
The SSA shall represent the industry before the U.S. Congress, federal regulatory agencies, and work with other national, regional and state associations to represent the self storage industry's interests before all other governmental entities.
The SSA shall work to bring together multi-national, national, regional and state self storage associations to fulfill its Mission and to serve as the principal clearinghouse of industry data and information, working toward common goals.
The Association will strive to serve all of its members equally regardless of type or size and to maintain an industry environment of fair competition at all times.
