International Right of Way Association Chapter 15

Welcome to International Right of Way Association Chapter 15

IRWAChapter 15, part of Region 04, is the New Jersey Chapter of the International Right of Way Association (IRWA). Chapter 15 was founded in 1956 and was one of the first chapters of the American Right of Way Association. The American Right of Way Association was later renamed the International Right of Way Association. We are a professional organization serving the needs of practitioners in the right of way field.

Chapter 15 has members in professions ranging from surveyors, title agents and appraisers to attorneys and engineers.  What brings us together is our participation in the acquisition, valuation and management of rights of way. If you are interested in joining our organization, please visit the IRWA Membership Page.

We hope you will join with us and share your time, talents and energy to help us improve our profession. There are many ways to participate in Chapter 15 including attending chapter meetings (non-members are welcome), networking with a professional committee in your specialty, contributing articles for our online blog, serving as a chapter officer, or attending courses. Whatever activity you choose to participate in, your presence adds to our organization. We look forward to working with you.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
