Benefits of Membership

Many men and women in the lighting and associated industries are motivated to contribute to charitable or educational causes, particularly linked to the industry. By joining our Company you can ensure that your contribution to such charitable and educational causes will have the maximum impact through the leverage of the time, talents and resources available across our membership. Click here for information on our charitable work and here for information on our educational work.

As a member of our Company you will also become part of a dynamic and friendly community. Membership is personal and for life offering the chance to meet like-minded people from all sections of the lighting related industry, often leading to lifelong friendships.

As a freeman of the Company you are able to attend a range of events, often held in prestigious and/or unique City of London settings. With the exception of the annual members-only dinner you are able to invite guests to Company events.

Once you progress through to full membership and become a Liveryman of the Company there are additional benefits, including:

  • Eligible to become involved in the organisation and management of the Company through committees and ultimately the Court (Board) of the Company.
  • Within the City of London you are able to vote in the annual elections for the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs. You are also able to become more involved in City of London activities e.g. by joining the City Livery Club; by attending City of London open events etc.
