Illumination Engineering Society Arizona Section

IES Mission: The IES seeks to improve the lighted environment by bringing together those with lighting knowledge
and by translating that knowledge into actions that benefit the public.

Welcome to the Phoenix Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), originally chartered as the Arizona Section in October 1951 .

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) is the recognized technical authority on illumination. For over 100 years, its objective has been to communicate information on all aspects of good lighting practice to its members, to the lighting community, and to consumers, through a variety of programs, publications, and services.

IES is a forum for the exchange of ideas and information, and a vehicle for its members' professional development and recognition. Through technical committees, with hundreds of qualified individuals from the lighting and user communities, IES correlates research, investigations, and discussions to guide lighting professionals and lay persons via consensus-based lighting recommendations.

The Society publishes nearly 100 varied technical publications, and works cooperatively with related organizations on a variety of programs and in the production of jointly published documents and standards.

IES members work with lighting in a variety of capacities - lighting designers, architects, interior designers, government & utility personnel, engineers, contractors, manufacturers, distributors, researchers and educators - throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico - and around the world. They share a common interest in lighting, and a common desire to promote the use of the latest, most innovative lighting technologies, with a focus on judicious use of energy in all lighting applications.

To assist the organization in providing quality programming, we appreciate the efforts of volunteers who have donated their time and talents and we also appreciate all monetary donations from sponsors and organizations.
