About NAILD

Throughout the years NAILD has continued to evolve and change with the lighting industry by offering leading educational programs and a forum, including regularly updating, enhancing, and expanding LS programs, and featuring forward thinking education such as controls and LEDs. NAILD was the first association for independent lighting distributors, giving them access to manufacturers on a greater scale, which helped to drive products to market. NAILD built a leading industry training certificate program that educates hundreds of individuals within the lighting industry, and has helped to bring together lighting distributors with major manufacturers in an intimate setting designed for networking to help facilitate business.
