Congratulations to Jodi Lednicky on her tenure as President of the IES Dallas Section and on 10 YEARS of IES membership!
As Manager of Lighting Applications at Hossley Lighting & Power Solutions, Jodi Lednicky truly loves what she does. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design at Texas State, she went back to school for a Master’s in Construction Technology. While she was at school, she met her mentor, current IESNA Director of Member Services, Jennifer Jaques. Jennifer helped Jodi see that lighting was her true passion and she’s been active in both the IES Austin Section and the IES Dallas Section ever since.
The highlight of Jodi’s tenure as IES Dallas President was the recent Illumination Awards ceremony, held on Tuesday, June 15th at the Dallas Arboretum. After more than a year of mainly virtual events, Jodi says that “the IES Dallas board of managers and the Dallas lighting community came together to create a highly successful evening. Just being able to pull off such a big event was amazing!” Jodi noted that the biggest change she has seen over the past ten years is that “IES has really been making a more conscious effort to focus on Emerging Professionals at the Society level, providing grants for research and sponsorships to attend IES conferences.” (Emerging Professionals are individuals who are still students or have less than 5 years of post-graduate experience in the lighting industry.)
Jodi is looking forward to serving in an advisory role as IES Dallas past President next year and aims to help future lighting design professionals find their passion like she did. Join Hossley Lighting & Power Solutions in celebrating Jodi’s service to the lighting community and to the whole HLPS team!
