Really good site. It was great to find the ILA concept still around. I started the ILA in Boston in 1983 and held many offices in it. I retired from in-house locksmithing in '98' after 30 years at Northeastern University. With all the comments in ypur guest book, it looks like there is still a need for communication between lock smiths. Jim Campbell

I appreciate the idea that ALL locksmiths should unite their knowledge and expertise for the betterment of our SKILLED trade. As a past president of W.M.L.A. (West Michigan Locksmith Association) I have ALWAYS encouraged our members to attend as many seminars and classes as possible. Knowledge is power, and the more knowledge that one possess can and does relate to greater profits! Thank You for allowing me to express some of my personal beliefs.... Respectfully Submitted, George Coffey

Hello to one and all out there. As a locksmith on the other side of this planet, i'm really grateful to the computer age. It has brought me to your site and have found it very interesting and a very good job is done there. But i guess it's not the same here from where i come. But then life goes on. I thank you humbly for putting up your site and not being selfish. Thank you again. Jerry

John, an excellent point. Most of our members work in the Greater New York City area, but in-house locksmiths that work farther away are invited to join or at least come to a meeting. Since our emphasis is on our monthly meetings and the educational classes and seminars, a locksmith living or working too far away may not receive all the benefits of becoming a member. But that decision is obviously up to him or her. I believe your e-mail address is incorrect. Please contact me.
