PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J. — In order to reflect its true value to the lighting industry, the National Association of Independent Lighting Distributors has changed its name to the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors, the organization announced.

"NAILD was the first association for independent lighting distributors and gave them a voice with lighting manufacturers, helping to drive new products to market," said Becky Phillips, NAILD president. "We provide state-of-the-art training for lighting professionals, multiple networking opportunities and quarterly publication of Today's Lighting Distributor magazine. We work with member manufacturers to provide educational webinars at your fingertips.

"As an organization, we always strive to create innovative programs for our members," Phillips continued. "In September we will launch 'Innovation Days,' one-day intensive educational sessions located on-site at lighting manufacturing facilities. Later this year, we will unveil a new training program focused on lighting controls and begin accepting nominations for our first Forces Under 40 Awards, an opportunity to recognize the next generation of rising stars in the industry."
