update: there is another chapter working on getting off the ground in the Washington DC area. Contractor, designer, manu, distributor, post interest here or send us a pm and we can get you the info on who to contact. they are putting together their group of ten, forming board etc. If you have an interest, now is the time to get in on the ground floor of this chapter. Northern California Chapter: they are going to be holding their first CLVLT (certified low voltage lighting technician) test this summer. I believe they will have 6-15 taking the test. excellent way to set yourself apart and gain sound knowledge, attain a certification from a non-affiliated source. Will post when date is disclosed. You will need to be a member of the AOLP to take test and get the study guide. Allow time to study, not an easy test.
