Thank you to all who attended our April program. Laszlo Takacs gave a fantastic presentation on Flicker. Let me know if you would like a copy of his slides. This month we have our final lunch program of the year before resuming again in September. Sri Rahm, Senior Lighting Application Specialist at GE, will give a presentation titled “What is a lumen, really?” Click on the Learn more/Sign up link above for more information.


The IES Scholarship golf outing is right around the corner on Friday, June 1 at Pine Ridge Country Club in Wickliffe. Proceeds will go towards our cash scholarship for a deserving high school student through CTSC, Cleveland Technical Society Council and their annual Achievement Banquet on May 7. Other proceeds will go towards section activities for the 2018–2019 program year. Kristen Mallardi is once again taking reservations for teams and sponsors now. If you are interested in golfing or being a sponsor, please let Kristen know.


I want to thank all our program sponsors this year (Wolff Brothers, Bright Focus Sales, Myriad Lighting Solutions, Graybar, and GE). You all really stepped up and provided high caliber speakers and topics. We look forward to more great programming next year! The Board of Managers has a summer planning session in July and we welcome new topics or speakers. Please let our Program Chair Sean Keenan know of any suggestions.


Our final Board of Managers meeting will be held on Thursday, May 24 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 May program!
