AGM 2018 Minutes


Doors will be open at 11:30 AM with the speakers starting at 12:00 PM.  A lunch will be provided – please message us after your registration if you have any specific dietary needs.


Please join us for the Annual General Meeting of Section 79 of the Illuminating Engineering Society - Edmonton Section (Northern Gateway).  The AGM will be relatively short, with an update on the past year's activities, some future plans and elections of the 2018/2019 board of directors.

In addition to the AGM, we will have a presentation on the State of Lighting in Edmonton, featuring some of our award-winning lighting projects, some interesting lighting installations, and other lighting features in town.

Again this year we will be recognizing our local section's lighting contributions with our Northern Lights awards.  One winner will be presented in each of the two categories; Interior and Exterior.  For simply submitting a project, there will be a prize draw, and for merely showing up and voting, there is a draw for a $100 VISA gift card.  No project is too small or too big - all submissions are welcome.  

If you have a project that you would like to showcase at our AGM please send us the following information:

  • Project title

  • Project location

  • A short description of the project

  • Up to 5 photos that we can use for the presentation

The projects may be geographically located anywhere in the world, however, design credit must belong to those in our local section.

We request that your submissions are provided to us no later than May 15th so that we have time to incorporate the information into our AGM presentation.  Full details of the submission requirements is available on our Northern Lights Awards webpage.

Come find out what's illuminating our province, enjoy lunch on us, and do some networking!


AGM Board Elections:

Election of the board for the upcoming year will be provided at the event with voting for the positions at the meeting.  If you wish to become a member of the board, or would like to nominate someone for the position please let us know.  

All nominations known before the meeting can be sent to the IES Edmonton email account with the name and proposed board position at  We would like to include names of nominees with the presentation for all to see, but this is not required, as any members in attendance may also be nominated for a position on the board. 

Descriptions and responsibilities for the board positions can be reviewed under the IES Section Guide (PDF).  We encourage all members who wish to become more involved with the local section to become general members (Managers) or Officers of the board.  We are always looking for new ideas and directions that will benefit our membership.
