LRC launches successful LIVE! From the LRC
Graphic: LIVE! From the LRC logo

LIVE! From the LRC is an Internet teleconference seminar series presented by the LRC. From March through June, LIVE! From the LRC brought lighting experts to participants’ offices via the Internet to give them the latest information on topics important to individuals and their businesses. The series allows people to have their questions answered by the leading authorities in lighting today. All that participants need is an Internet-connected computer and a telephone.

Live! From the LRC seminars are designed to meet the needs of architects, engineers, lighting specifiers, facility managers and administrators, building owners and developers, energy service professionals, and other professionals interested in gaining a better understanding of light and lighting. Seminar participants receive two university continuing education units (CEUs) accepted by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the National Council on Qualification for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP), and other professional organizations for each seminar attended.

The first Live! From the LRC seminar, presented in March, focused on outdoor lighting. In April, the topic was energy-efficient and load-responsive lighting. The May seminar covered LEDs and how they are revolutionizing the lighting world. The final seminar in the initial series, presented in June, focused on light and human health.

The LRC is planning another series of seminars for this fall. Topics will be announced later this summer. Learn more at the Live! From the LRC Web site. Or contact Dan Frering, the LRC's manager of education, at (518) 687-7149 or via email at
