New Member Benefit Coming

The Northeast Self Storage Association is excited to launch a new member benefit called the Member Discount Program. This idea will allow vendor members the opportunity to promote a benefit or discount from their companies to NeSSA facility members.

Vendors are invited to send in a brief submission explaining their offer, along with their company name, contact person, email address, and phone number to Courtney by 6:00 PM on Friday, November 22nd. Offers should short, sweet, and to the point (less than 30 words).

The board will review all submissions, and vendors will be informed of offer approval or any needed changes in early December.

The Vendor Discount Program will launch January 1, 2020.

Need some ideas? See below for examples!

Self storage website design and development: Exclusive to NeSSA members only! $495 (regularly $749)

Free insurance consultation and insurance quotes for self storage facilities.

Special new Work Comp program and new exclusive policies offered for NeSSA facility members.

Sign up today and run your first 4 online auctions for free.

The Birth of a New Association

Four score and 38 weeks ago, our Connecticut and Massachusetts Boards brought forth unto New England, the idea of a new association, conceived in cooperation and dedicated to the proposition that a merged organization would be larger, stronger, and provide more benefits to the self storage industry in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

Now that we have engaged in a greater association, we can ensure that an organization so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met at the newly formed Northeast Self Storage Association’s EXPO to network, learn, and celebrate the merger.

But in a larger sense, the process of merging was complicated. Our members, however, came through with more than enough votes to approve this new larger and stronger organization. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but the self storage industry, from the SSA to other state associations, will never forget what we did here in 2017, forming the first-ever United States regional self storage association.

We here are highly resolved that we are done with the attorney who made this process difficult. For it is up to us, now that we’re done with the legal process, to be dedicated to the association and dedicate ourselves to the unfinished tasks before us.

We have given birth to a new association of the members, by the members, and for the members, and we shall not perish but thrive.

Speech given by Executive Director Lorna M. Bolduc, CAE at the September 27-28, 2017 Northeast Storage EXPO.
