SSAM is an affiliate of the national Self-Storage Association (SSA).
As a member of SSAM, you are entitled to several national benefits,
including an annual subscription to the SSA Globe magazine, e-mail

Communication and Education
One of the most important features of SSAM is its ability to
communicate information to its members quickly through e-newsletters,
faxes and seminars. SSAM keeps each member informed about legislation,
changes in government regulations, and current trends in the industry.
Effective Legislative Action
Under the guidelines established by the SSAM board of directors, the
association staff works with legal and legislative counsels to monitor
the progress of legislation that affects the self-storage industry and
contributes input to assure that our viewpoints are represented,
understood and protected. Members are kept informed about the progress
of legislation that could affect their business.
SSAM's role in government affairs does not end with its influence in
the legislature. The association recognizes the importance of
understanding and dealing with the myriad of agencies and departments
that create and implement our laws. For that reason, the association
functions as a liaison between you (as a business) and the bureaucracy
that regulates our industry.
