NGN Team

The NGN is run by a dedicated team of elected and volunteer members (please check the Vacancies page if you would like to get involved). Team meetings are held every month via teleconference and the team meets every year at the CIGRE UK AGM. Both options are open to any other NGN member who may be interested.
