Alexandria, Virginia — The national Self Storage Association (SSA) today announced that it will manage all administrative functions for the Nevada Self Storage Association (NVSSA) and the Pennsylvania Self Storage Association (PASSA) effective immediately. With the addition of Nevada and Pennsylvania, the SSA’s state management division now oversees 17 associations.
“The SSA works very closely with a state’s board of directors, focusing on educating, growing membership, and ensuring successful annual conferences,” said Julie LaRose, SSA’s director of state association management. “The groups realize many synergies and are focused on common goals.”
Among the many functions the SSA will oversee for both Nevada and Pennsylvania are: accounting; membership; annual meeting planning and coordination; educational seminars; quarterly newsletters; board meeting agendas; and the monitoring of state legislative activity.
“The SSA is so knowledgeable and well established in the industry, and we felt they could take us to the next level,” said Shelby Beck, president of the Nevada SSA.
Said PASSA President Alyssa Quill: “PASSA is excited to work with the SSA. We are impressed with their strong team, infrastructure and industry relationships. We look forward to improving our ability to help self storage operators in Pennsylvania become even better operators with the SSA’s help.”
