Welcome to the twelfth issue of ITL.
In this edition we have a couple of articles on the work being carried out by CIGRE Australia members, a reminder of some member joining incentives and the upcoming Technical forum and members AGM at the end of November.
The articles include an interesting brochure which has been produced on the issue of how to meet reliability standards whilst complying with Market Rules; Improving system reliability through the use of Wide Area Protection Systems; and a consideration of using markets and regulatory frameworks in ensuring timely investment in transmission.
November 23rd sees the running of our Annual technical seminar in Adelaide, at which each of our Australian Panel convenors will report back on the work carried out in their respective panel areas. This seminar is open to anybody, is free to attend and will be a great opportunity to get a feel of the work that CIGRE gets involved in, as well as meet the leaders and technical experts of our Panels.

Following the Technical Seminar, there is a members' dinner on the Thursday night and then our members' AGM on the Friday (these events are members only).
A highlight of this year's AGM will be the finalisation of voting for our Board Directors. Members should have already received the voting pack and information.
Speaking of members, we are currently offering the rest of 2017 and all of 2018 for the 2018 member fee. As at the time of writing, this offers 14 months for the price of 12 and will give immediate member access to the global e-cigre database of some 14000 reports. brochures and documents.
