About CIGRÉ Membership

2017 Individual Membership

CIGRE is an organization of 95 countries with 11,910 members.
The US has 629 members and has the third largest CIGRE national membership behind Brazil and China.

We hope you will consider individual membership in the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of CIGRÉ for 2017.

Individual memberships afford that person member rates at conferences. To attend the Paris Biennial as a member, you must have two consecutive years as an individual member (i.e., to attend 2018 Paris at member rates, you must be a member for 2016 and 2017).
