New Executive Director Announced for NeSSA


June 28, 2018 – The Northeast Self Storage Association (NeSSA), comprised of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, announced that Courtney J. Long will serve as their new Executive Director effective July 1, 2018. NeSSA’s long-term Executive Director, Lorna M. Bolduc, has decided to retire after having worked with the states that make up the association for just over 10 years.

“Retirement is calling and I’m looking forward to a more relaxed lifestyle,” said Lorna. “I started working with CTSSA in 2007 and with MASSA in 2010 and the relationships I developed have helped make my career in association management, and more specifically as a self storage association exec, a rewarding one. Thank you to all for your support over the years.”

Lorna hired Courtney in February 2015 to serve as CTSSA’s and MASSA’s Membership & Meetings Manager. They have worked closely together over the last three years on all aspects of managing the association.

Joe Victoria, President of NeSSA, said, “Lorna has been an integral part of our history and will always be part of our future as she was responsible for merging our states into the first regional self storage association. We appreciate everything Lorna has done for us over the years and wish her a wonderful and fulfilling retirement. NeSSA’s board members have worked with both Lorna and Courtney for the past several years, so it only seems fitting to have Courtney take over the reigns. She has learned from the best and we are all looking forward to working with her in this new role.”
