When a student member graduates

When a student member graduates, she or he can continue as a student member at the end of the year of graduation (no membership fee, no opportunity to join the working groups). Alternatively, she or he can change the membership category immediately after the graduation into Category I or Category II (membership fee, possibility to join working groups, access to vote at CIGRE General Assembly).
