We are a nonprofit organization of lighting industry professionals united in a mission "to advance knowledge and to disseminate information for the improvement of the lighted environment to the benefit of society."
This section has approximately 100 active members that reside in the area of North Carolina from the Research Triangle (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill) to the coast. Our membership includes a diverse group of professionals including lighting designers, architects, engineers, manufacturers, interior designers, electrical contractors, facility managers and salespersons, just to name a few. Please view our program calendar for upcoming events locally and nationally.
Through our monthly meetings and educational programs, the section provides a value-packed, quality encounter by drawing upon the abundant resources from our community of high-profile lighting professionals and national speaking resources. Our monthly meetings are as diverse as our membership; there is something for everyone. Our various educational programs offer introductory material for the beginners, as well as advanced materials for those with a deeper foundation illuminating engineering. The programs allow you to acquire Continuing Education credits for Professional Engineers in NC, and for the LC and CLEP programs.
