Preconference Emerging Professional Program
Each year, IES sections and corporate sponsors step up to provide funds to support the attendance of Emerging Professionals (EPs) — which includes students, early career professionals, and professionals making a career change — at the IES Annual Conference and the IES EP Workshop that precedes the conference.
The IES Annual Conference (AC) provides a range of educational programming—including workshops, seminars, immersive experiences, tours, networking, and paper and poster presentations—on the art, design, science, and research of lighting relevant to lighting professionals, educators, and related design disciplines. As always, professional education is paramount, with a broad selection of CEU credits available through participation at the conference.
2021 IES Emerging Professional Preconference Program
This year’s Emerging Professional Workshop was held virtually on Thursday, August 5, 2021 (12PM-5:30PM ET) preceding the 2021 IES Virtual Annual Conference. While we faced unprecedented times, we were committed to providing a relevant, timely, and engaging virtual EP program this year. We had great and well-known speakers from the lighting industry that covered a broad spectrum of the most relevant and important topics such as benefits of EP membership, Education and IES Tools, Interactive Communication and Career Progression, and more.
Here are the presentations from this year’s Emerging Professional Workshop. Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, the IES Emerging Professional Program Committee, and everyone that contributed to the program’s success.
