New York Industry Group Changes Name

Posted on April 21, 2010 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

The Nassau Suffolk Limousine Association now becomes the Long Island Limousine Association.

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. — One of the largest New York City area industry associations has taken on a new name to reflect its expanding reach throughout the busiest metro area in the world for limousine and livery service.

Members of the Nassau Suffolk Limousine Association voted overwhelmingly to change their name to the Long Island moniker, which reflects the groups growing national and global clout and recognizes that the geographic name “Long Island” is known more widely than the two counties where most of the group’s operators are based: Nassau and Suffolk.

As of this week, the group has about 85 owner/operator members and another 32 associate members.

At the association’s last meeting March 30 at the Huntington Hilton, there was standing room only, as members heard the latest regulatory update from the New York New York State Department of Transportation. For years, limousines were able to leave the state of New York without having to follow federal DOT regulations as long as operators were within a 75-mile radius of their home bases. As of May 3, this 75 “air mile” exemption will be removed, so attendees got the latest details of the rule change and how to comply.

In addition, JEFF GOLDBERG & ASSOCIATES, a sales training and consultant group based in Long Beach, N.Y., gave a seminar on how operators can increase their number of appointments with prospective clients and close more sales.

The next general meeting of the LONG ISLAND LIMOUSINE ASSOCIATION will be held May 25 at a time and location still to be determined.

LILA will continue to use the Web site URL address of the Nassau Suffolk Limousine Association ( until a new URL address under the LILA name is launched.
