This week, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) announced its 2021 Society Awards for Technical and Service Achievement. Following last week’s Annual Conference, the society released this video congratulating recipients from both 2020 and 2021.

This year, the IES’s prestigious Medal Award has been bestowed upon Dr. David Crawford of the IES Phoenix Section. The Medal Award recognizes meritorious technical achievement that has conspicuously furthered the profession, art or knowledge of illuminating engineering.

The esteemedLouis B. Marks Award, named in honor of the first President of the IES, is presented to a member of the Society in recognition of exceptional service of a non-technical nature. This year, the IES recognized Cheryl English of the IES Atlanta Section with this honor.

The IES Distinguished Service Award is presented to individuals who have significantly furthered the mission of the IES in non-technical areas, with at least 15 years of dedicated service. The 2021 recipients of this honor include Megan Caroll (New York City Section) and Daniel Salinas (Seattle Section).

The IES Fellow Designation awards members of the Society for their valuable contributions to the technical activities of the Society; to the art or science of illumination; or to the related scientific or engineering fields. The 2021 IES Fellows include: Rick Kauffman (Atlanta Section), Christian Monrad (Phoenix Section), Michael Royer (Portland Section) and Richard Miller (Santa Barbara Section).

Each year, the IES President recognizes member excellence with the IES Presidential Award. IES President Antonio Garza (2020-2021) recognized Mariel Acevedo of the Portland Section for her exemplary volunteerism, enthusiasm and passion for supporting the Leadership Forum Committee and its purpose, outstanding advocacy of the IES mission and vision, and invariably exceeding expectations to actively promote the welfare of the Society’s Sections and members. Also recognized by Mr. Garza is Peter Hugh of the Chicago Section for leading the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Respect (DEIR) Committee who, through the lens of inclusivity, seeks to identify opportunities in which the IES can enact systemic change within its institutionalized culture and practices to promote a more equitable and accessible Society.
