Welcome to the New York City Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society. 
We are a volunteer professional membership organization comprised of individuals who share a mutual appreciation for and fascination with all things lighting.  We are lighting designers, architects, engineers, consultants, lighting manufacturers, lighting representatives, electrical distributors and allied professionals.

We are dedicated to promoting both the art and science of illumination to our members, to other professional organizations, to the industry, and to the public through inspiring events, informative programs & educational series, and great networking opportunities.
