  • President's Message

    Greetings Chapter 27 Members:


    It's the Holiday Season and time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the New Year. First, I'd like to express how thankful I am for the tremendous support I've received from the Membership at large, Employers, our Executive Board, and our Sponsors since being elected President. It's all of us working together that help makes the Chapter a success.


    As 2017 winds down, Chapter 27's membership renewal campaign is ramping up. Some of the benefits you receive by maintaining your membership are staying connected to your profession through the Right of Way Magazine, educational programs, and the community of your peers. You also receive reduced member rates when you take a course, attend conferences and seminars, as well as Chapter luncheons, meetings and events. IRWA has made it easier than ever to renew online, and it takes less than five minutes. Don't forget, a portion or all of your dues may be reimbursable by your employer (even for some public agencies), and membership dues may also be tax deductible (please check with your tax professional).


    Here are some of my goals for 2018:

    Succession Planning: Chapter 27 has multiple openings on the Executive Board including Chairs for Relocation Assistance, Surveying, Retired Member, Transportation, Utilities, and Transportation. Professional Development is also in need of a person(s) to learn underneath the current Chair. To meet the challenges of ever changing business climates and issues in the future, Chapter 27 needs to maintain a dynamic board made up of individuals and employers with varied backgrounds, skill sets, and knowledge. If you are interested or have questions about joining the Executive Board please e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , the only requirement is to be a member. To encourage participation, Chapter 27 will even pay for your 2018 membership if you are a new board member (up to four people).


    Education Credits for luncheons: I've asked our luncheon chairs to provide me with the name of the attendees for our September, October, and November luncheons. Upon receipt, I will send notices of continuing education credit for those in attendance. It is my goal beginning in January to do this monthly. These credits along with interesting speakers, great venues, and quality meals will help drive participation at our luncheons.


    Look for these upcoming events in early 2018!


    -December 14th, 2017, Holiday Luncheon at the Firehouse including door prizes, annual awards, gift basket raffle. This is one event where the Chapter gives back to our members.
    -Course 100, January 23rd and 24th, 2018. Newly revamped course only two days long. Great for new professionals in our industry!
    -Young Professionals Event at Golden1 Center in February. Watch for the announcement soon to learn about the land acquisition over happy-hour, and get a tour of the Arena.
    -Chapter 42 Educational Seminar on March 23, 2018 in Monterey (5 CEUs), and Region 1 Spring Forum and March 24, 2018.


    I'm positive that 2018 will be another tremendous year for IRWA Chapter 27.


    Linus A. Paulus, Chapter 27 President
