The IRWA is a valuable resource for everyone within the infrastructure real estate professions. The benefits of becoming a member of your local IRWA chapter are numerous but some of the biggest advantages include: networking, educational opportunities, and belonging to a codified ethics. 

What are the Benefits of Joining the IRWA’s Chapter 31?

Any professional within the infrastructure real estate sphere will admit that networking is an essential part of the job. Chapter 31 of the IRWA is a large chapter that serves the Carolinas. The chapter regularly holds social events as well as annual and seasonal seminars. These events are excellent opportunities to connect with professionals in the field. These events alternate around cities and regions throughout the Carolinas but every year the chapter gathers at Charleston, South Carolina. They also regularly meet at Raleigh, NC Charlotte, NC, and Columbia, SC. 

Networking

It can be difficult to find the time and wherewithal in order to successfully build a strong network independently. Regardless of if you’re a right of way agent, are involved in legal, relocation, surveying, engineering or construction, the IRWA provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for bringing together talent. It also allows people that may already have working relationships to meet vis-a-vis each other. Oftentimes, too, individuals in their respective right-of-way fields need help finding a mentor or a firm willing to put in the time to train them, at the events held by the IRWA there is ample opportunity to create meaningful and lasting working relationships like this. 

Education

Further educational opportunities are also an incredible benefit of the IRWA. And not just via the certified courses and designations the IRWA offers like the SR/WA. But also for the numerous conferences and speakers that present at IRWA chapter events. Seasonally and annually, the IRWA conferences and seminars include full days of presentations by cutting edge professionals that offer exciting glimpses into the future of the industry, as well as as talks by professionals with copious experience and insights. There is the opportunity to both learn new tricks of the trade as well as tried and true methodologies. 

Codified Ethics
