Upcoming Event

The IES, the Cleveland Section, and the Transformations in Lighting
Terry McGowan, LC, FIES
Director of Engineering, American Lighting Association


The lighting industry in the Cleveland area is important and has often been at the forefront of new lighting technologies, but our lighting contributions go well beyond that. Come and learn about the little-known but significant events that we have contributed to lighting history, lighting knowledge, and lighting practice over the past 50+ years. No doubt many of you have knowledge about such things too. Come and be part of the discussion.


Our speaker, Terry McGowan, is a recipient of this year’s IES Louis B. Marks Award which recognizes his 50+ years of service to the IES. He retired from GE Lighting in 1998 and since then has been involved in his own lighting consulting business, Lighting Ideas, Inc., in Cleveland Hts. His industry activities currently include being the Director of Engineering for the American Lighting Association and serving as a member of the board of the J.H. McClung Lighting Research Foundation.
