IES Strategic Plan 2020‐2025

The Illuminating Engineering Society’s (IES) mission is “to improve the lighted environment by bringing together those with lighting knowledge and by translating that knowledge into actions that benefit the public.” The new IES strategic plan not only establishes goals and objectives for the Society, but also creates a foundation and system to cultivate advocates. The IES is an advocate, the Board, staff, and our members are all advocates. We are advocates that promote the mission and vision of the Society. Through this plan, all members should feel a sense a pride and empowerment to become, and continue to be, active participants in helping the Society achieve its cause. There are many ways that you can be an advocate: volunteer on committees, participate with your local section, bring non-members to meetings, promote the IES Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct, support the Emerging Professional Program, and reference your membership and any volunteer roles within the IES when presenting as a subject matter expert to name a few. The new strategic plan presented in this document articulates how advocacy impacts our society in six primary pathways (Standards Development, Advancing Research, Education, Strategic Partnerships, a Diverse and Global Membership, and Nurturing Leadership) and the positive role that you as an advocate can have towards our success.
