About the Kansas Self Storage Owner’s Association

Founded in 2004, the Kansas Self Storage Owner’s Association (KSSOA) was created to strengthen the self-storage industry in Kansas, promote professional standards and quality, and present a unified voice on issues affecting the industry in the state and in its communities. KSSOA continues that mission today with approximately 150 facility and vendor members.

KSSOA is an organization for its members, designed to serve the interests of men and women in the self storage industry. Since its foundation, KSSOA maintains the vision that its membership will create and sustain a strong industry presence in Kansas to preserve the rights of self storage business owners. Collectively KSSOA seeks to accomplish its goals through education, networking and governmental relations. By addressing the concerns of self storage facility owners and managers through newsletters, programs and presentations at statewide meetings and through its internet presence, KSSOA creates an important network of owners, managers, vendors, consultants, legal advisors, and industry representatives.

KSSOA provides industry information, technology access, member discount for products and services, and advocacy and professional development services. KSSOA stays on top of regulatory and legislative actions that can affect local self storage facility owners. The association is governed by a board of directors.
