The Idaho Self Storage Association was chartered on 1/31/01 at the national self-storage convention in Las Vegas. The first president was Robert Scott; Inaki Lete was vice president, and Doris Peterson was the secretary/ treasurer. ISSA was incorporated and acquired a 501(c)6 tax status as a nonprofit business association. The organization has since grown from eight members to more than 60 members who represent storage facilities statewide. The bylaws were adopted August 15, 2001, at the time of the original incorporation and they have guided the organization ever since.
