National Lighting Bureau Introduces New Sponsorship Category

The National Lighting Bureau has established a new sponsorship category targeted at for-profit organizations with annual receipts of less than $10 million. The sponsorship fee is $500 per year.

Prior to this, the minimum fee was $1,000 during the first year of sponsorship, followed by $2,400 in year two and $3,600 annually thereafter. The new $500-per-year rate stays at $500 indefinitely, unless the organization’s annual receipts increase beyond $10 million. Nongovernment not-for-profit groups also start at $1,000 a year and reach $2,400 annually after three years. Government groups start and stay at $500 per year.

NLB Chair Howard Lewis (Lighting Alternatives, Inc.) said the move was prompted by several organizations voicing support of the Bureau but that could not justify the sponsorship fee.
