Amanda Foust and I would like to thank all of our regular sponsors who have stepped up to help fill our program schedule for 2015–16. If you know of a speaker or would like to sponsor a program for the 2016–17 program year which begins in September 2016, please let us know. Like in years past, we’ll hold a program planning meeting this summer to discuss potential topics and speakers. We’ll invite the membership to join us for this “town hall” style meeting.

The IES Emerging Professionals will be holding their next event May 18 in conjunction with The Cleveland Museum of Art’s Think and Drink with the Extinct ( Join us at 5 p.m. as we explore the museum’s lighting and controls and mingle with other young professionals from the Cleveland area. The event is free to IES Emerging Professionals and light finger foods/cash bar will be provided. Let Tony Clark ( know you’re coming! See below for additional information on our Emerging Professional group.
The IES Emerging Professional group is an extension of our local IES Chapter and it’s meant for people new to the lighting industry – i.e. 5 years or less. We hold 3–4 events per year which typically include happy hours, round table discussions, or lighting tours around Cleveland; all of which are open to both members and non-members. Group members include lighting designers, engineers, manufacturers, and distributors. The goal of our EP group is twofold: professional growth through networking and membership into the IES.


Best regards,
