Newport Beach, CA – December 13, 2012 – The California Self Storage Association has announced that is has secured lawyer/lobbyist Randy Pollack to actively engage California legislators in 2013 on behalf of the association and its members.
It is a given that chief among any state self storage association’s interests are state laws that pertain to the industry. After all, a state association’s primary responsibility is to take care of its members. Lien laws, taxes and which information avenues self storage owner/operators should choose to inform the public about lien offenders and upcoming auctions are all key issues for CSSA members.
"I have worked with many trade associations over the years,” he says. "Many times the association’s membership is hesitant to get involved in the political process. However, when CSSA introduced legislation several years ago, the support of the membership was vigorous and focused. Our legislation passed without a single ‘No’ vote. This was due in great part to the outstanding effort of CSSA members who responded to our requests to send in letters and make phone calls to their local legislators.”
"For our 2013 legislative agenda,” Pollack concludes, "we will be providing updates to the membership and developing a grassroots action plan where members will once again be asked to help our legislative efforts through writing and meeting with their local legislators. The bottom line is that you are the experts, and yours is the credible voice in our effort!”
