2024 IES PHL Welcome Letter

Good Afternoon IES Philadelphia Members,

Happy New Year! I wanted to take an opportunity to thank everyone for supporting IES Philadelphia. We have a fun and exciting year planned, and I hope you get to take advantage of the events planned by our board and by the IES HQ.

Before I list out a few of this year’s events, I’d like to invite you to join a committee in support of our Illuminate Philadelphia Educational Conference! Taking place this fall, Illuminate Philadelphia is a day long conference with a small table top trade show by supporting agents and manufacturers. We typically do these biannually, and this will be our first time back in full since the pandemic! Join a committee today to get a chance to network, learn more about the IES PHL, and to help your lighting community!
