Celebrating 10 Years of Making a Difference, The CSSA Owner’s Summit Coming July 17

 

When anyone celebrates a 10th anniversary, it is a big deal. In the case of the California Self Storage Association, celebrating the 10th annual Owner’s Summit on July 17 at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach is a VERY big deal! Thanks to the generous support and involvement of Talonvest Capital, a great lineup of speakers and panels will once again demonstrate why the CSSA Owner’s Summit is one of the most highly anticipated self storage events of the year in California.

It starts with a top-notch keynote speaker in Neel Kashkari, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury whose topic is “Lessons Learned from Public Service and the Private Investment World.” Kashkari is a 2014 Republican candidate for Governor of California, who also raised capital to help Silicon Valley entrepreneurs grow their companies at the San Francisco office of Goldman Sachs and led the Equities Group at PIMCO.

The panels and presentations at this year’s gathering will also include: (1) Private Owner CEO Panel – topics covered to include Value-add Acquisitions Completed in 2014, Increasing Cost of Customer Acquisitions Due to Online Bookings ,and Effective Growth Strategies for Small to Large Operators for 2014 and Beyond; (2) a Split Roll Proposition 13 presentation; and (3) a Developments and Construction Panel.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a CSSA gathering without great networking opportunities, a cocktail party and the opportunity to support Kure It Cancer Research at a special event following the cocktail party. It is also worth noting that this year’s Owner’s Summit will be starting earlier than usual (10:30 a.m.).

“The Owner’s Summit has become one of our most anticipated events every year,” said Erin King, Executive Director of the CSSA. “Even after nine highly successful recent gatherings, we realize that we need to keep upping the ante and making it better. We think the 2014 version will be our best yet. Many thanks to Talonvest and Jim Davies for helping to pull so many parts of the presentation together.”

The event has been a sellout in recent years, so those interested in attending may want to act quickly. Early Bird rates of $225 for owner/members are in effect until May 30, after which time the regular registration rate of $275 is in effect. The Early Bird rate of $525 is in effect for vendors/members until May 30 and then goes to $550. For those wishing to stay at the Balboa Bay Club and Resort, there is an exclusive discounted rate of $220 per night. The phone number for Balboa Bay is 888-894-2788 or you can book online at the Balboa Bay website, which is balboabayresort.com.
