October Meeting Survey

Dear Members, Your GPLA Board of Directors and Officers met on September 14 th . It was very nice to see each other in person, after 6-7 months. We all wore face masks as we were seated 6 feet apart. Tables and chairs were sanitized and hand sanitizer was available. We all felt safe and it was very productive. We will leave it up to you to decide to have an October membership meeting. Of course, we will be following all of the safety guidelines.

2020 Convention Cancellation Notice

The Members and Officers of the Greater Philadelphia Locksmiths Association hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe during these incredibly difficult and challenging times. We extend our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by this pandemic. Due to the uncertainty of the ongoing health crisis and after careful consideration, GPLA has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 convention. As disappointed as we are to make this decision, the health and safety of the attendees, instructors, exhibitors, and VIPs who attend our convention is our utmost priority.

We will post the dates for our 72nd Anniversary convention as soon as we have them finalized with the host hotel. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay hopeful.
