ALA Chooses Four New Board Members
 

Members of the American Lighting Association approved four new nominees to the group’s Board of Governors at the American Lighting Association conference in September. The annual event, held this year in Washington, D.C., brought manufacturers, retailers and representatives together to network and discuss issues of importance to the lighting industry. The new board members were selected to help advance the American Lighting Association’s national agenda.

Tony Davidson, President and CEO of Kichler Lighting, was elected to his first term on the Board of Governors. As a member of the American Lighting Association’s leadership, Davidson is charged with representing his fellow manufacturers in the lighting industry. President of Kichler since 1997, he occupied senior sales positions with the firm prior to taking the company reins and has served on several American Lighting Association committees during his 25-year career in the lighting industry.
 
Re-elected for a second term, Lars E. Bostrom once again takes up the mantle on behalf of manufacturers’ representatives on the Board of Governors. Bostrom, President of Bostrom Lighting Sales in Raleigh, NC, was awarded the American Lighting Association’s Pillar of the Industry Award in 2007, and he was among the first American Lighting Association members to earn the Certified Lighting Manufacturers’ Representative (CLMR) designation when it was introduced in 2006.

Clark Linstone is CFO of Chatsworth, CA-based Lamps Plus and President of Pacific Coast Lighting. This dual role makes him uniquely qualified to represent lighting showrooms in his first term on the American Lighting Association’s Board of Governors. At the American Lighting Association conference, he was also elected to serve as Treasurer of the board in 2009. Linstone is a past chair of the American Lighting Association’s government affairs committee.

Tom Early, President of Forestville, MD-based Burgess Lighting, returns for a second term on the Board of Governors. An association member since 1993, Early is a past recipient of the American Lighting Association’s Pillar of the Industry Award. He is also an active participant on the American Lighting Association’s government affairs committee and has spent many years advocating for small businesses on behalf of the American Lighting Association in Washington, D.C.
