YOUR KEY TO SUCCESS!
WA-SSA Conference & Trade Show
Postponed until Spring 2022
Reconnect, Re-engage and Rise Up
Following the CDC and Governor Inslee’s recent announcements of increased COVID cases, combined with the mandates for masks indoors and outdoors, the board determined it is in the best interest of each of you who have supported the Washington Self Storage Association, to postpone the WA-SSA Conference & Trade Show until Spring 2022.
We want you to know we yearn to see you in person, but we do not want to take any chance to jeopardize the health and welfare of anyone. If you had already registered for this year’s conference, you may request a refund by replying to this email. We do look forward to seeing you in 2022! Watch for details.

A Message from our president Patrick Reilly
On behalf of everyone at the Washington Self Storage Association (WA-SSA), we commend all of you for the efforts you have implemented to bring us together again.
At this time we are setting our sights on an IN PERSON WA-SSA Conference & Trade Show for Friday, October 1, 2021. For those who have attended past years, we will move back to spring for 2022, but we have missed so many of you and have a need to share valuable information.
WA-SSA is committed to our members and strive to be responsible, thoughtful, and transparent with our decision process. We continue to follow CDC and State of Washington guidelines on social distancing and operations. We appreciate your support, patience and understanding.
