2017 IESNYC Past Presidents Luncheon

It's an annual tradition to hold a Past Presidents Luncheon. Its guests is a small "club," with an "elite" membership. What they have in common is that they led our Section for one to two years — no small task—and it was an opportunity for them to reminisce about their time as president, what they accomplished, and what they left unfinished for the next president. The Past Presidents also celebrated the 111th birthday of the New York City Section.

The IESNYC is sponsoring Valeria Terentyeva so she can attend the 2017 IES Annual Conference held in Portland, OR August 10-12. She will be presenting her thesis which involves analyzing theoretical models of predicting thermal conductivity of composite materials for LED heat sink applications. The study investigated the thermal properties of composite materials with respect to their potential to be used for 3D printing of LED heat sinks. The goal was to explain the behavior of thermal conductivity in polymer and inorganic particle filler composite materials by evaluating theoretical models and comparing their predictions to experimental results Read More >

Message from the President

Congratulations to the Lumen Awards co-chairs, Clara Powell and Adrienne Shulman, and everyone who contributed to the Lumen Awards Gala — especially the sponsors — for a successful and fun evening. I also want to congratulate the Lumen Awards winners on their outstanding designs.
I want to thank Brian Belluomini for his excellent leadership during his tenure as President of our Section.
This year, our Section will focus on testing the limits of technology — to make our Board meetings and programs as interactive as possible, and accessible to our community. I'm asking you to help us "think outside the box" and suggest programs — even "guerilla" events — that will excite, teach, or just be fun!
The New York City metro area has the "best and brightest." We are fortunate to have three fantastic lighting organizations in the DLF, the IALD, and the IES. We all share the same goals: to educate and learn.
If you have a suggestion for a topic or event, or just a question, please contact me at president@iesnyc.org or speak to anyone on the IESNYC Board. 
Caleb McKenzie, President
New York City Section of The Illuminating Engineering Society
