Email subject:CIGRE Newsletter July 2014

Cigré, the world forum for power systems

Words from the Secretary General

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

So far the CIGRE newsletter was sent to subscribers exclusively, which meant that not all our Members received it.

It is has been decided that from now on this newsletter would be sent to all CIGRE members.

Non-member subscribers will continue to receive it, and I hope they will find in it good reasons to join CIGRE.

This newsletter is the last one before the 45th Session in Paris in August, and if you are a Delegate, you will find useful information to organize a busy week.

As in the previous issues, you will also find an updated information on what is going on : new Working Groups, new Technical Brochures, new CIGRE Award nominees and coming events.

I wish you a pleasant reading.

Philippe ADAM

Secretary General
