LEED & WELL
Canada Green Building Council
Thanks to Peter Whitred, the Senior Manager of Green Building Programs at the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), and a professional engineer with more than 10 years’ experience in the sustainable building industry.
Peter presented to a full house providing attendees with an overview of the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) and the LEED and WELL building standards, with an emphasis on the required and optional lighting measures that can be implemented to achieve recognition under either initiative.
No Meeting in May
Due to it's proximity to our annual golf tournament, there will be no meeting in May. Please check back for details of our season closing June event.
Each year your local IES section strives to keep you at the top of your lighting game by bringing knowledgeable speakers to you at our monthly program meeting events. Usually held over lunch, the format typically included some time to network with other local members of the Ottawa lighting community followed by lunch and 45-minute presentation by a guest speaking on a timely lighting or related topic. We work hard to find speakers from around the country and across the continent who are well respected and knowledgeable in their particular area of expertise.
If you haven't been to one of our events lately, we encourage you to join us at our next meeting. It is this Section's mission to serve its members and the Ottawa lighting community by bringing together those with lighting knowledge and those who can benefit from the sharing of that knowledge.
In addition, we schedule a tabletop tradeshow in January and reserve the month of May for our ever popular IES Golf Tournament.
