COSSA Lien Sale Meeting

COSSA and Storage Auction Kings co-hosted a training session on lien sales on August 19th.  Rich Schur conducted the comprehensive two-hour meeting free-of-charge for COSSA members and answered a number of excellent questions from participants.  See meeting photos here.
Thanks, Rich, for clearing up some of the confusion surrounding the lien law requirements for our members


For anyone who might have missed out, here is a copy of Guy Middlebrook's presentation at the Fall Meeting held on October 16th.

COSSA TENTH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

On June 24th, COSSA sponsored a "Rockies Night" for COSSA members and their guests to celebrate our 10th anniversary of being in business. The night was a huge success with 60 COSSA fans cheering on the Rockies vs. Cardinals game at Coors Field. We met on the patio at LoDo's Bar & Grill for a fun social hour then went on to see the Rockies defeat St. Louis. We are totally convinced the Rockies success was overwhelmingly due to our support and cheers for our team.

Special thanks to Mindy Levy for all her hard work in arranging for the tickets and the social hour at LoDo's.

COSSA FALL 2014 MEETING

On October 16, 2014, COSSA held its 2014 fall member meeting, with over 100 attendees present.  This was our first meeting at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, and it proved to be an excellent forum for us. 



The meeting was sponsored by KIWI II Construction, dcb Construction, Janus International, and Global Roofing.  Our sincere thanks to each of these companies for all of their support and assistance to the Association by helping us provide some great, educational speakers and still keep our costs low enough to make these meetings accessible and affordable for all of our members.

>> Photos from the meeting. <<

Speakers included Guy Middlebrooks of Cubesmart, who discussed some of the historical trends in the self storage industry; Larry Stern, President of Nationwide Tax Consulting, who offered suggestions as to  when and how you could contest your property tax bill; an energetic discussion of what to expect in your facility’s life time by Tom Razo, TRC Companies, and Jeff Kinder, Advantage Storage; and  a panel discussion on issues with regard to marijuana legalization in Colorado and the possible impacts it might have on self storage businesses.  Marcus Pachner, representing the Cannabis Growers Association; Adam Schlosser of Marcus & Millichap; and Todd Mackintosh, COSSA legal liaison, presented their thoughts on the subject and answered questions from the audience.
And, as always, one of the most valuable benefits afforded by these meetings is the opportunity to meet and network with other self storage owners and managers from around the state. 

Our thanks to everyone who participated and made this meeting a success.



ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS

The COSSA Board, as part of its efforts to give back to the Colorado communities we serve, would like to partner with the self storage industry and Schur Success Auctions in 2014 to provide fundraising support for Assistive Technology Partners (ATP), the leading edge provider in research, design, testing and application of technologies for persons with the most severe cognitive, sensory or physical disabilities. 

One in five people in the U.S. lives with a disability, and ATP is in business to identify, evaluate and test new technologies to help the disabled reach their highest potential at home, school, work, play and in the community.  The need is great!

We’d like to familiarize our COSSA members with the miracles ATP performs and the amazing life-changing services they provide.  Please click on the links below to learn more about this wonderful organization, and offer your support.  You’ll be hearing more about ATP at the upcoming COSSA spring meeting/trade show.
