Last week we held our first ever Trivia Tuesday, and it was such a success that we decided to keep it going! This week, our bit of trivia comes straight from the Self Storage Association. The Self Storage Association (SSA) is a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization formed in 1975 under Section 501-c-6 of the Internal Revenue Code. For more than 38 years the Association has served as the official trade organization and voice of the U.S. and international self storage industry. SSA is the registered lobbying entity representing the industry’s facilities before the U.S. Congress and federal departments and agencies. The association is also quite active in representation of the industry before state legislative and regulatory bodies. The national SSA is formally affiliated with some 31 state and regional associations within the United States. In addition to its U.S. relationships, the SSA is affiliated with 4 international organizations representing another 12,000 self storage facilities situated in Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, Latin America and South America.
According to Self Storage Association, there are how many operational self storage facilities in the United States today?
Remember, the first person to answer the question correctly via the comments section of the blog will win a free Storage Unit Auction List coffee mug. As we head into the colder months, you'll need it!
