Cigré, the forum for electrical innovations

November 2013

Words from the President

Dear all,

Welcome to the November 2013 edition of the CIGRE newsletter. We continue this newsletter, at a monthly rhythm, providing interesting news covering both CIGRE’s and International events.

2013 Administrative Council Meeting

In addition to approving the creation of a new South East European Region of CIGRE (SEERC) as announced in the October Newsletter, the Administrative Council also approved the following;

  • Creation of a sub-committee comprising Klaus Froehlich, Mark Waldron, Richard Bevan, Jorgen Christensen, Michel Augonnet and Antonio Varegeo to oversee the recruitment of a new Secretary General. Applications for the position of Secretary General close on 8 November;
  • A financial strategy to ensure that prudent levels of financial reserves are retained for the secure operation of CIGRE in the events such as the Global Financial Crisis;
  • Establishment of a new Turkish National Committee;
  • New Study Committee Chairmen who will be announced soon; and
  • Guidelines to be used at all formal CIGRE meeting to ensure compliance with Anti Trust laws.

The Administrative Council members also received updates from Steering Committee Task Forces on Promotions and Communications, Membership, CIGRE Awards and the Website.

I wish you a pleasant reading,
