Thank you all who attended our program on Engineering Ethics last month. This event was well attended by many familiar and new faces and reviewed Ohio’s current PE and PS governing laws by the State Director. Thank you, Graybar, for sponsoring an informative presentation!


Our annual Golf Outing is right around the corner. This fun event will be held at Pine Ridge Country Club in Wickliffe and provides a scholarship for a deserving Kent State University student going into lighting design or engineering. View our flyer and contact our golf outing ambassador Kelley Moran for more information.


Our Emerging Professional group is preparing for their first ever Luminaire Design Competition! LightenUp: 2019 (View Flyer) is a lighting design competition organized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and Cleveland Section Board of Managers to inspire and energize Emerging Professionals (EP) in their understanding of fixture development and application. This inaugural competition, in conjunction with 20 other sections around the country, looks to provide a collaborative environment between new and experienced engineers, architects and designers, fostering communication, and creativity. Not to mention the winner will get their fixture fabricated at Halper Lighting Studios and a generous cash prize. Contact Josiah Schleicher and/or Bob Halper for additional information.


You don’t want to miss our next event on Thursday, April 18 at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown. Litesheet’s Harry Nutile will be presenting on Direct-Current LEDs. Please join us for an informative program!


Our program year is fully booked! Stay tuned for dates and venues, but in the meantime, if you would like to sponsor an event or suggest a speaker for next program year (2019–2020), please contact our Program Chair Sean Keenan.


And finally, our next Board of Managers meeting will be held on Friday, May 17 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.


I look forward to seeing you at our April program!
