PRESIDENT’S REPORT | November 2018


Thank you all who attended our annual clambake trivia night yesterday! This fun event was presented by Wolff Brothers Supply and took place at Harry’s Steakhouse in Independence. Bob and Dyke did an amazing job running the trivia night and coming up with hilarious questions.


Emerging Professional Chair Josiah Schleicher has been busy planning the next few EP events. He is planning a holiday light walk through newly renovated Public Square and a fixture design competition in 2019. This national competition, in conjunction with Halper Lighting Solutions and IES Washington DC, will engage emerging professionals in a fixture design competition across the nation where each luminaire will be judged and the winning design will be fabricated in Halper’s studio. Details are still in the works, so stay tuned for more information. Contact EP Chair Josiah Schleicher if you would like to hear more.


You don’t want to miss our next event on Thursday, November 8 at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown. Regional Specification Manager Sally Clem will be speaking on tunable white lighting design and specification, so please join us!


Our program year is shaping up quickly. A sneak peek of upcoming events include horticulture lighting, utility rebates, and Driverless LEDs. Stay tuned for dates and venues, but in the meantime, if you would like to sponsor an event or suggest a speaker please contact our Program Chair Sean Keenan.


And finally, our next Board of Managers meeting will be held on Friday, November 2 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 November program!



Tony Clark, PE
