2016 Individual Membership
CIGRE is an organization of 95 countries with 11,910 members.
The US has 629 members and has the fourth largest CIGRE national membership behind Brazil, China and Japan.
We hope you will consider individual membership in the U.S. National Committee (USNC) of CIGRÉ for 2016.
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 2016 Paris at member rates, you must be a member for 2015 and 2016).
Individual membership, either new or renewal membership, must be processed
through the U.S. National Committee at the address indicated below. (Only
if a country has no National Committee are membership applications
and dues to be sent directly to the CIGRÉ Paris office.)
