Dear IES Richmond Section Members,

We have a lot of great offerings ahead this year! In response to the interest survey, we are increasing the number of networking events and focusing on webinars that are design and certification centered.

Laurence Jones will be updating our Facebook page to include the schedule of events for our Section. This is also a location we can all share industry-related events. Please follow us at:

Michael Adams is working with IES Society on a Web Page. We will keep you posted as it develops.

Chuck Niedermayer has stepped up as Interim Board Member and Awards Chair. I’m sure he would love some volunteers to help him. The year will end with an Awards Dinner and opportunity to celebrate our EP’s and long-time IES Members.

I have a favor to ask of everyone. Please bring an industry friend to the September 25th Social at BINGO Beer Co. It will be a great chance to introduce EP’s to the group and do some after-hours networking.

Last year the participants in LightenUp! had blast. Please complete the attached interest form if you would like to participate this year. It is a wonderful chance to get your creative juices flowing. The event is not until May but Interest forms are due November 1.

We will continue to send out Evites for our Section sponsored events. Please RSVP so we know you have received the invitation (even if you can’t make it). Attached is a listing of the current schedule.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or suggestions. Let’s make this our strongest year so far!
