The Q&A is hosted by industry experts Jim Chiswell, president of Chiswell & Associates LLC, and Mel Holsinger, president of Professional Self-Storage Management LLC. Both have extensive experience in self-storage management and consulting. The event will be sponsored by Bridger Commercial Funding, a provider of commercial real estate capital and services.
In addition to fielding questions on hot industry topics from the audience, Chiswell and Holsinger will draw questions from Q&A boxes that will be displayed throughout the Expo registration area and seminar rooms on Feb. 4 and 5. Attendees can use these boxes to submit questions in writing before the event. Anyone whose question is picked will win one of several prizes, and other gifts will be given out at the whim of the hosts.
The Self-Storage Q&A will open with a formal announcement of the Inside Self-Storage 2008 Scholarship Program winners, who will each receive 2,000 toward education at a college or university of their choice.
