Where Credit Is Due
Laura Van Zeyl

Alan and Mitch Colker of Alco Lighting Sales in Richmond, VA, have hosted regular American Lighting Assn. (ALA) accredited seminars led by longtime ALA educator Joe Rey-Barreau for some time now. It’s one of the reasons ALA recognized Alan at last year’s Conference with a prestigious Pillar of the Industry Award.

Well, their next edition of this tradition is going to be extra special. It’s their 30th seminar event, so they have themed it around “30 Important Questions That Every Professional Lighting Showroom Consultant Should Be Able to Answer … in Five Minutes or Less.” What's more, they’ve partnered with a number of their lines this time — Framburg/Arroyo Craftsman/House of Troy, Kalco/Allegri, Satco/Nuvo Lightng, Northeast Lantern and Millwork Lighting — to reduce the seminar registration fee to just $30.

The full-day seminar will be held at the Hyatt Place in Richmond on Oct. 17 and earns participants 7 CLC® credits. To register or for more information, contact Alan or Mitch Colker.

We’re also hosting a Joe Rey-Barreau seminar in that timeframe, although ours will be in cyberspace. Rey-Barreau will lead “The ABCs of LEDs,” is live webinar on Oct. 13 at 2 p.m. EDT focused on how solid-state lighting is shaping sustainable design. This seminar is also accredited — attendees receive 1.0 Learning Unit from AIA/CES LU (HSW), 0.1 CEU from IDCED (IIDA, ASID, IDC), 0.1 CEU from NKBA and 0.1 CEU from NARI.

We’ve partnered with our sister publications Professional Builder, Professional Remodeler and Building Design + Construction on this event, which is sponsored by Ferguson Enterprises, Lutron, Access Lighting and Lux by Mighty Bright. Registration is $59 and can be accessed here.
