As an influential professional body, we are consulted by government on a wide range of issues, including legislation and regulations that affect the built environment.
We aim to ensure that proposed measures are both effective and practicable, by serving on committees, and commenting on draft legislation, reports and consultations.
What We Do
The Institution of Lighting Professionals unites the skills of engineering, design and technology in order to deliver quality lighting for the built environment and achieve public benefit.
In setting and establishing standards for good practice, the Institution seeks to ensure that its members attain and develop the professional knowledge, education and skills to meet necessary competencies, and to enhance their careers.
Working on exterior and interior projects, in public spaces, workplace, leisure, retail and residential applications, members of the Institution of Lighting Professionals deliver excellence in light and lighting, a quality which is recognised by both private and public sectors.
The Institution’s structure is based upon ensuring our membership is represented at every level of the organisation.
There are nine Vice Presidents responsible for the various portfolios of activities. The Vice Presidents sit on Council and give shape to policies and initiatives for submission to the Executive Board.
The Board of Trustees is the governing body of the Institution, responsible for all business functions and delivering policy priorities with the Vice Presidents.
Each Lighting Delivery Centre Branch has its own Committee. Each Branch Committee has a representative who serves at the ILP Council inputting to policies and strategies.
The Young Lighting Professionals is an integral division of the Institution, with their own Chair and Secretary who input to policy via the Council and Vice Presidents.
