IES Forms New IES Waterloo Section in Southwest Ontario

The Illuminating Engineering Society’s Board of Directors has approved the Society’s newest section in southwest Ontario—IES Waterloo.
LD+A, the Illuminating Engineering Society’s award-winning publication for professionals involved in the art, science, study, manufacture, teaching and implementation of lighting, was presented with an Gold EXCEL Award for both its 50th Anniversary issue and its 2022 Media Kit.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently introduced four new standards documents addressing current challenges that face the lighting industry – navigating near-field photometry, standardizing iterations of lighting controls intent, the importance of UV lighting, and promoting a balanced outdoor environment. The four new standards are available in the IES webstore.
It’s that time of year again when we begin the IES Board of Directors (Board) nominations process to identify the future leaders of our Society. This is one of the most important annual processes that any organization goes through. This is a very exciting time, and we need your continued involvement to make the nomination process successful. We want our Board to be representative of the finest leaders in the industry, and we need your input to make that happen!
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently introduced the standard, ANSI/IES RP-44-21 Recommended Practice: Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation. This new standard addresses the use of UVGI for disinfection, the potential dangers for humans, potential effects on materials and plants, UVGI technologies, and safety measures and precautions.
