Happy New Year IES NJ Friends and Members!

We are starting off 2018 with an historic look back to the origins of our industry and lighting in NJ.

This month’s event is also a great way to introduce your peers and colleagues to our IESNJ-Edison Section. Come learn about the history, innovations, and inventions of none other than Thomas Edison at the National Historical Park in West Orange, NJ. From those just getting involved in the lighting industry to established professionals this event holds great value to all that attend.

Members/attendees are encouraged to bring friends, colleagues, co-workers, and other non-IES NJ members to this event. This is an extremely valuable experience that will provide great insight and information to even the most seasoned of lighting professionals. Discounted rates for NEW MEMBERS!
