Officers of the Greater Philadelphia Locksmiths Association (GPLA) are elected by the General Membership every two years. Our line officers consist of President, Vice President, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary and Sergeant At Arms. These officers conduct our monthly General Membership meetings. Line officers are also on the Board Of Directors.

The Board Of Directors meets monthly in addition to the General Membership meeting. At the Board meetings, new membership applications are reviewed for presentation to the General Membership, industry legislative matters are discussed and day to day association matters are conducted.
