About Us

In a highly evolving world, a right of way professional is involved in almost every aspect of life. They facilitate everything from bringing water to your tap to watching your favorite show on the airplane!

Right of way professionals are involved from the initiation of a project to its finishing point. The technical skills required by all right of way professionals are increasingly important as many disciplines are involved in these complex activities.

The successful completion of a project relies on the relationship between these professionals and an understanding of their role. Most projects require the input from acquisition agents, appraisers, environment professionals, engineers, lawyers, property managers, surveyors, public consultation experts and title experts. These professionals can be found in the nearly 10,000 member strong IRWA.

The IRWA’s specialized education and credentialing program culminates in the SR/WA which is globally recognized for its dedication to strong ethics and continued professional development. Membership in Chapter 48 provides a conduit to making professional connections needed when trying to meet the current environmental regulation or perhaps get advice on a surface rights legal matter.
