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 notetaking pages, quizzes, and additional references. Registration is now open on our website. See our advertisement in the Lumen Press for full course details.


The IES Scholarship golf outing is around the corner, June 2, at Pine Ridge Country Club. Proceeds will go towards our cash scholarship for a deserving high school student through CTSC, Cleveland Technical Society Council. Other proceeds will go towards section activities for the 2017–18 program year. I am taking reservations for teams and sponsors now. If you are interested in golfing or being a sponsor, please let me know!


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, 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, March 10 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,
