Thank you to the volunteers who came out in the rain and helped us give a great tour to our guests at the IES Light+Behavior Symposium in April: Tony Clark, David Kinkaid, Karen Harrison, Joe Borzyn, Amy Whitehead, Randy Burkett, Terry McGowan and Mike Evert.


The Symposium planning committee was impressed by everyone’s knowledge, but even more by everyone’s enthusiasm! Thank you for helping to make this a very good event for our city, the IES and our international guests.


Note: If you would like to attend the program, but wish to pay via cash or check at the door, please contact Mike Confer to RSVP.

Golf Outing Update:

I have already heard from a few of our regular sponsors and teams. THANK YOU! Keep those sponsorship and team commitments coming! The money we raise goes towards our scholarship to a local HS student through the CTSC, Cleveland technical Societies Council. I will be presenting our scholarship check to our recipient at the CTSC scholarship banquet at Windows on the River on May 5. I will be inviting our recipient and his or her parents to our banquet after the golf outing on May 30.

If you are not a golfer but would like to help out as a volunteer or attend the banquet only let me know! Along with the golf outing awards, we have a raffle and give out our yearly section awards at the banquet. It is a great way to wrap up our program year. I hope you can join us!


The board of managers meets once a month during the program year, usually via phone. Our next meeting is May 9 at noon. If you’d like to join the call please contact Henry Barker and he will give you the dial-in information. All board meetings are open so don’t be afraid to join in. We welcome your input.


We have had a wonderful year of programming thus far and look forward to our final meeting in May. If you would like to sponsor a program, suggest a speaker or subject for next year, please contact our Program Chair, Mike Evert at or 440-725-3781. The board of managers will be holding a programming planning meeting in July of 2014. All section members are invited to be a part of this planning call. An e-mail invitation will be sent to our membership two weeks in advance of that call.


Best regards,


Kristen Mallardi, LC
