If you missed our September presentation, you missed a lot! Rolf Bergman’s talk on CQS vs. CRI was highly technical and gave us some valuable insight into all of the issues the lighting industry is wrestling with in regard to how we “score” the accuracy of light sources to render color. If you would like a copy of the CQS scorecard spreadsheet that Rolf talked about in the presentation, please contact Yoshi Ohno at NIST


Special thanks to Kathy Preciano, of Kent State University as she arranged to her interior design class to attend our September meeting. Though the subject matter was very technical, her students were not intimidated! They took a lot of notes, one student commented afterwards that she was excited to research the concepts and terms that she was not familiar with. Each student was also given a copy of the September issue of LD+A.


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.

The IES Annual conference, A Confluence of Art and Science, kicks off on November 2 in Pittsburg PA. See the IES website for details on how to get registered If you are considering attending for the first time let someone on the board of managers know, we will make sure you have some buddies to help you navigate your way through the conference. After attending the previous 3 conferences, I can truly say that it is well worth your time.


Our program year is shaping up quickly, if you would like to sponsor a program, suggest a speaker or subject for the coming year; please contact our Program Chair, Mike Evert at or 440-725-3781.


The Board of Managers meets once a month during the program year, usually via phone. Our next meeting is October 17 at noon. If you would 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.
