Integrating LED into our Landscape Lighting Design @ Botanic Gardens
Apr 17 @ 11:30 am – 1:15 pm

Please join us at the Botanic Gardens April 17th for a presentation by Jan Moyer 11:30AM to 1:15PM

Janet Lennox Moyer will share how she visualizes an outdoor space to create a night environment. She will discuss issues from composition to important factors in lighting plant materials. The way LED produces light varies significantly from traditional light sources we knew so well, so, the way we use them differs. Using day and night and halogen to LED comparisons, she will share how the LED technology radically changed landscape lighting. Jan will discuss how LED lighting has propelled landscape lighting forward, providing more flexibility to create a successful solution. She will also discuss the complications that LED introduce compared to traditional technology.

Learning Objectives:
A. Difference in light production and the effect on lighting compositions
B. Advances LED Technology brings to Landscape Lighting
C. Cautionary issues to understand regarding LED technology

Lunch provided at no charge, sponsored by VISTA Professional Outdoor Lighting

She is an expert in spectral analysis and color with a focus on specialty lighting applications including ultraviolet, horticulture, herpetology, aquaculture and shatter containment.

Much More Than A Recommended Lighting Practice @ Jason's Deli
Apr 30 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

A new IES Recommended Practice, RP-11, Residential Lighting was rolled out during 2018. RP-11 is ANSI approved and so is now the official “standard” for residential lighting. It is also the result of a joint effort, the first involving the IES and the American Lighting Association or ALA (the trade association for the residential lighting industry in the U.S. and Canada). You’re invited to our April IES Meeting to learn about what’s inside RP-11, to see what’s new in residential lighting design and to hear how the ALA is working to incorporate residential products and design ideas into “residential-like” spaces in commercial lighting projects.

Speaker:
