“Thank you for all your hard work putting on the PASSA Spring Meeting! I learned a ton, not only in the sessions but also from networking with other attendees. Looking forward to deepening my involvement through the SSA YLG and Women's Council.” Corinn Altomare, Bird in Hand Self Storage
The 2020 PASSA Owners and Managers Spring Annual Meeting and Conference was held at the Toftrees Golf Resort in State College on March 8-9, 2020. The meeting was a great success!
On Sunday evening, attendees enjoyed a networking reception sponsored by Janus International Group and StoragePug. On Monday, over 90 attendees passed through registration to open the day and visited with the 11 industry leading exhibitors. We would like to thank our supportive sponsors, the presenting sponsor Storable, networking breakfast sponsor, IRE, and lanyard sponsor, Janus International Group. Welcome and introductions followed, with remarks led by PASSA President, Mike Moyer. Next up was the presentation of the 2020 PASSA Manager of the Year award. Jim Mooney gave a stirring introduction to this year’s recipient, Stan Roof of Kwik Stor Self Storage. Congratulations Stan on this exceptional accomplishment.
The agenda offered educational sessions for both owners and managers. The owners kicked off the day with a session on how to make tax reform work for you in self storage, led by Bruce Johnson of Capstan. Managers attended a session of their own on how to use different avenues to close the rental, led by Jim Mooney of Freedom Self Storage. After a short break, the owners shifted to discussion of the state of the industry, led by Paul Sloate of Green Drake Advisors. In the managers summit, Tommy Nguyen of StoragePug led a session about what managers can do to impact their SEO.
After lunch, all attendees enjoyed a panel on operations best practices led by Lonnie Bickford of Storageauctions.com and AppleTree Storage, David Decker, Jim DelSordo of Automated Security and Kevin Bledsoe of IRE. For the final sessions of the day, Tedd Mowat of Wanner and Associates gave a legislative update, and Jeffrey Greenberger followed up with a legal session.
From exhibits, to the industry-expert led educational sessions, to the priceless networking opportunities, there was something for everyone at the 2020 PASSA Owners and Managers Spring Annual Meeting and Conference to enjoy. We hope to see you all at the PASSA Fall Meeting on October 14-15 at Spooky Nook in Manheim!
