NCQLP invites you to include the LC Luncheon in your Lightfair plans. It is an excellent opportunity to earn one LEU and network with your LC colleagues in a relaxed environment. This luncheon is the largest event at Lightfair and sells out each year so we encourage you to purchase your tickets as soon as possible at

Do stop by the NCQLP Booth, #4808J as well. There you can obtain information on the cities where the LC Examination will be held in 2013. Those who are already Lighting Certified should ask for the LC ribbon at the Booth. The 2013 print editions of both the LC Candidate Handbook* and the Certification Renewal Guidelines* will also be distributed at the Booth and at the Luncheon.

* Both publications will be online at in early April 2013.
