LIRC Ambassador Program

Advocacy and engagement across the industry.

The LIRC is now accepting applicants to become an LIRC Ambassador for your local IALD Region/Chapter.

An LIRC Ambassador can represent any LIRC company and will work with the local coordinators to engage with the local IALD LIRC community. The LIRC Ambassador will help promote community, communications, events, networking, the IALD, and more.

Please note that LIRC Ambassadors will be reviewed and determined by the local Region/Chapter Coordinator and IALD staff, and will serve a term of two years.

What does a LIRC Ambassador do?

  • Supports and liaises with the regional/local IALD Chapter Coordinators.
  • Serves as a go-to for other LIRC members and potential members in the region.
  • Communicates with all representatives of LIRC members in the region.
  • Creates LIRC network events/opportunities at any local industry event (e.g., inviting LIRC members to meet for coffee during a trade show set-up or end-of-day drinks).
  • Serves as respected contact for any non-local LIRC member visiting the Ambassador’s country/region and seeking advisement (e.g., identifying the top Fuorisalone events during Euroluce in Milan).
  • Promotes IALD LIRC to the local media & other associations (museums, etc.) and makes connections for potential partnerships with IALD.
  • Engages in and promotes the benefits of LIRC membership to other manufacturers considering joining the LIRC.

Benefits of becoming an LIRC Ambassador
