Newport Beach, CA – December 3, 2012 – The California Self Storage Association is excited to announce that they will be featuring stories about current members on their website monthly throughout 2013. The CSSA is actively looking for qualified candidates for this effort in the form of current members who have made a difference in their community or who have impacted the Self Storage industry positively in some way. Nominations can be submitted by contacting the CSSA directly at

As the holiday season approaches it is only appropriate to announce the CSSA’s first featured member, Brian Caster, as he is no stranger to giving. As far as Brian Caster and his family are concerned, helping the needy isn’t just a holiday tradition – it is a year-round mission.

Brian, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage, has been a supporter of the California Self Storage Association since the beginning and is a strong believer in the role of the CSSA in serving self storage owners across the state and he is keeping up with the ongoing efforts in the state legislature to take on major issues in the industry.

Brian’s charitable efforts go beyond a personal platform. A-1 Self Storage has over 42 locations, and all of them are part of humanitarian (and ecological) efforts to better the planet. Brian’s dedication to supporting charitable organizations and his generosity have not gone unnoticed as can be seen in the newly released article about his charitable efforts which can be found on the CSSA website throughout the Month of December.
