Our industry leading, Nationally Accredited lighting courses are popular with new and seasoned professionals across the building and construction sectors, including engineers, builders, designers, architects, lighting professionals, and those involved in the development and regulation of lighting policy.
Back in May The Society received an invitation from The North American Illuminating Engineering Society (IESNA) to attend a one-day Global Lighting Summit that would coincide with their 2018 Annual Conference and all the side line events that go along with it. The Global Lighting Summit aimed to put lighting organisations from all over the world in the same room to create an international group of societies who are able to have contact, share information and otherwise support each other’s activities as a truly international society.
We had also been discussing our co-operation with the IESNA actively for some time now and I felt it was time for a face to face meeting to help secure our relationship moving forward. Gaining access to IESNA resources including awards programs, research, speakers, and the like would be an amazing way to gain recognition for our members on an international stage and increase the growth of our society in both Australia and New Zealand.

Healthy Lighting – Where are we now?
“Healthy lighting” is getting considerable attention in the lighting community and beyond, but do we really know what healthy lighting is? This talk will explore how we might think about healthy lighting, present existing research on how light can affect human health and wellbeing, and consider limits to our current knowledge.
Dr Alicia Allan is a postdoctoral research fellow at QUT, with a background in psychology. Her research investigates both the psychological and physiological effect of environmental light on humans.
Despite the Construction, Infrastructure and Engineering industries dominating Australia's economy, there is a lack of female representation in executive, leadership and technical roles. Ambitious women trying to reach the top must equip themselves with new skills and tools to take the next step in their leadership career.

The summit will provide women with the capabilities to advance their career, voice their value and overcome the obstacles faced on the journey into executive leadership roles.

Gwenyth, a strong advocate of the IES and education and research, bequeathed a sum of money to the IES from which the earnings support the bursary (see attached for more information on Gwenyth Ewens).

Recently our CEO Kirsty Kelly was a guest of the Australia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) at their Brisbane networking lunch with Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities, The Hon Paul Fletcher MP.
In speaking to the gathered crowd of some 50 CEO’s across the association sector and industry, the Minister highlighted the Government’s commitment to major infrastructure and continued population growth. Touching briefly on the quality of the built environment, he acknowledged to importance of creating great urban areas and the necessary supporting public infrastructure and community facilities to accommodate a growing population.
It is pleasing to see IES on the advocacy and political radar, with an invitation to this gathering, which included several former State and Federal Ministers, and the former state Premier.
