The Society of Professional Locksmiths is "Unleashing the Beast in 2011"
As part of the initiatives I set into motion for the society, there is the "steering committee." Up until now member contributions and input came in enthusiastically by members and collated and executed by myself or our team members system administrator Harvey Arkawy of www.rabbitsoft.us. myself and Mr. Mark Hedspeth, the IT Guy and good friend.
A formal steering committee is now assembling to approach the positive demand for more of what the SOPL can do to help the locksmith community and to implement more industry involvement. This collective body will consist of recognized industry contributors, mom & pop locksmiths and just about anyone else who has the energy and creative enthusiasm to "make things happen."
The SOPL is not a dinosaur who is stuck in mud and there will be no massive grid lock in the form of a "board" where politics are played. The goal of the steering committee is to get things done and do so with rapid consensus and execution using technology along with PEER resources from within the locksmith industry.
The New Year is quickly approaching and I look forward to having this new steering committee on board and formally announced. Change is a positive thing if they implement changes to the work already put into the SOPL and it makes it better, then I look forward to my vacation!
