CSSA, Talonvest Slam a Homer with Peter Ueberroth Speaking at the Owner’s Summit This July 23

Some baseball players are just better at hitting clutch homeruns than others. Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays had a knack for coming up with the long ball when their team needed it the most. The California Self Storage Association and event sponsor Talonvest Capital have just knocked one out of the park with Peter Ueberroth slated to be the keynote speaker at the 11th annual Owner’s Summit on July 23 at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort in Newport Beach.

Ueberroth has slammed quite a few career homers of his own. He is nationally acclaimed for having headed-up one of the most successful summer Olympic Games ever (1984 Los Angeles Games), and he was the Commissioner of Major League Baseball from 1984-89. He was Time magazine’s Man of the Year in 1984 and also Chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee from 2001-2008. Ueberroth is now the managing director of Contrarian Group, an investment and management company.

“The Owner’s Summit has become one of the top national conferences in self storage and now it has gotten even better!” said Erin King, Executive Director of the CSSA. “I can’t say enough words of thanks to Jim Davies and Talonvest Capital Inc. for helping organize this event and bringing in such a terrific keynote speaker like Peter Ueberroth.”

Davies, a principal at Talonvest and founder of the Owner’s Summit, is excited about the upcoming gathering.

“My partners at Talonvest, the CSSA Summit committee and I have been passionate about featuring industry leaders like Ron Havner as Keynote Speakers,” Davies said. “We also like presenting attendees national and regional business and political leaders such as former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and California Republican gubernatorial candidate, Neel Kashkari (our 2014 Keynote Speaker) and, of course, Peter Ueberroth.”

The usual top notch 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. This year’s panels will feature a Financial Leadership Forum, headed by Wayne Brandt, Managing Director, US Loan Originations, Wells Fargo Capital Markets, as well as a Self Storage Investment Trends presentation that will include industry experts like Chris Sonne (valuation expert for Cushman & Wakefield) and Ryan Burke (Green Street Advisors).

“Due in part to people’s excitement to hear Peter V. Ueberroth, the current registration number has eclipsed the best previous registration number almost two months prior to the July 23rd 11th Annual Self Storage Owners Summit that has been a sellout most every year,” added Davies.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Owner’s Summit without great networking opportunities. The Summit Networking Cocktail Party will take place from 4:15 – 6 p.m. Then there will be a special boat outing in support of Kure It Cancer following the cocktail party.

Given that the event has been a sellout in recent years, those interested in attending may want to act quickly. The registration rate is $275. The rate for vendors is $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.
