NPSA Announces Industry-Focused Committees

The National Portable Storage Association has announced its industry-focused committees for 2009.

Kansas City, MO, December 18, 2008 --( The National Portable Storage Association (NPSA), a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry, is actively engaged in helping its members drive efficiency, profitability and best practices in an industry that is growing rapidly across the country. That's why the NPSA has developed committees around strategic initiatives that are important to its members in 2009.

"We've developed committees based on recognized needs in the portable storage industry. Together, we can share ideas in important areas like public relations and technology with our members to maximize their membership ROI and help them grow their bottom lines," said John Finnessy, CMP, Executive Director of the NPSA. "Our committees rely on active industry veterans to help us steer the association in a direction that helps members stay abreast of vital advances, practices and policies."

The NPSA's Best Practices Committee aims to raise awareness and help build consensus on the best ways to operate portable storage businesses. The Public Relations Committee works to actively promote the industry and prove how valuable the portable storage industry is to the livelihood of many businesses in local communities, as well as publicize the charitable causes their members are involved with.

The NPSA's Legislative Committee monitors federal, state and local government initiatives concerning the use of portable storage units, and assists members that get entangled with city restrictions that hinder business. The Standards, Certification and Ethics Committee develops quality standards that members can use to set themselves apart from competitors.

The NPSA's Technology Committee monitors and makes members aware of various technological breakthroughs that may assist their businesses, as well as the association. Finally, the Insurance Committee works to set up a proper industry classification and educates underwriters about how the portable storage industry operates.
