Cooper Lighting, Peachtree City, Ga., will be the premier meeting host of the inaugural 2012 DesignLights Consortium's (DLC) Stakeholder Meeting to be held at the Intercontinental Buckhead Hotel and Resort in Atlanta Oct. 28-31. In addition to sponsoring three continuing education accredited classes on LED and lighting controls topics at the DLC meeting headquarters, Cooper Lighting will be hosting a welcoming reception at its corporate headquarters in Peachtree City on Sunday, Oct. 28. The invitational event, which also qualifies for continuing education credits, includes a tour of the company's Innovation Center and a tour of its Source educational facility.

The DLC is a collaboration of U.S. and Canadian utility companies and regional energy efficiency organizations committed to raising awareness of the benefits of efficient lighting in commercial buildings. The Stakeholder Meeting will bring together utility and energy-efficiency program managers and executives, utility contractors, lighting designers, lighting specifiers, testing laboratories, electrical supply and installation companies, government agencies and solid-state lighting (SSL) manufacturers.

Attendees can get Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits by participating in a number of classes on various SSL topics sponsored by Cooper Lighting. All the sponsored classes will help attendees gain a better understanding of new LED technologies, lighting controls, legislation and standards.
