Happy New Year, and welcome to the second half of our 2016–17 program year. We have a lot of exciting things planned for the first part of the year, including our January event which will be a social event (dinner) with a webinar on the side at Taverne of Richfield. I hope that more of our membership from the Akron/Canton area will be able to attend this event.


We will be offering The IES Fundamentals of Lighting course this Spring. Marian Perez, our Education Chair, will once again be coordinating the course.


Fundamentals of Lighting is an introductory course comprised of seven modules. It replaces ED-100, Fundamental Level. Fundamentals of Lighting enables participants who pass the course to receive IES Continuing Education Units or AIA Learning Units. Each module includes textual material, PowerPoint student handout note-taking pages, quizzes, and additional references. Look for a formal announcement with course dates, costs and registration details soon.


Note: If you would like to attend the program, but wish to pay via cash or check at the door, please contact Mike Confer to RSVP.

In other local IES news, we will be holding elections for officers and board of managers in March, each for a 2-year term commencing on July 1, 2017. If you wonder what it would be like to be on the board or be an officer, I would encourage you to ask one of us what it’s like? How much time do I need to put in to be an effective board member? If you are interested in learning more about job descriptions they are available on the IES national website or again, ask a current officer or BOM member.


Our next board of managers meeting will be held on Friday January 20th at noon via conference call. These meetings are open to all of our members, if you would like to get involved, please let Henry Barker know,, and he will add you to the meeting invitation.


Best regards,
