The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and all available information. It is a serious development that weighs heavily upon the Society, members, volunteers, and the lighting industry at-large. After considering all relevant facts, they have decided that, effective immediately:
- The IES headquarters office is closed until further notice with all employees working remotely;
- All non-essential IES staff travel is suspended; and
- Decisions concerning Society events will be made and communicated to you based upon current information with a focus on the health and safety of our members, volunteers and staff.
You have likely already seen the communication from LightFair about the decision that was made by IES, IALD, and IMC leadership to postpone the 2020 trade show and conference in an attempt to preserve the health and safety of the industry and general public.

During this time of uncertainty, the IES encourages you to reach out to them if you have any questions or concerns. There are a lot of great developments coming from the IES in the coming months and they are excited about the future of the Society.
Be safe and be careful. The IES value your active participation, all you do for the IES, and thank you for your continued support.
