Legal Seminar was a big hit!

On October 22, 2015 the NHSSA held its first legal seminar with speaker Atty. Jeffrey Greenberger, who the NHSSA flew in from OH for the event. Upwards of 60 attendees got an earful about the ins and outs of leases, auctions, military rights and much more. Excellent questions were asked by the audience and even some healthy debate ensued! Atty. Greenberger made somewhat dry material engaging and interesting with his humorous anecdotes and very funny presentation.

He also let us know about his new auction program called Late 2 Lien. 

A cocktail reception with abundant and delicious hors d’oeuvres ended the day and a great time was had by all. Surveys submitted at the end of the event showed that it was very well received and appreciated by the participants. 

Thanks again to our Sponsors Flexospan , Optivest Properties, LLC , NAI Norwood Group 

More information about Atty Greenberger can be found at his web site: www.selfstoragelegal.com

The NHSSA is hitting its stride. We are developing new programs for the future and always want to hear from our members with ideas and feedback. Please email us at nhssa.board@gmail.com or call Liz at 603-609-8330.
