IRWA Tennessee Chapter 32


Since its inception as a not-for-profit association in 1934, IRWA has united the efforts of its members toward professional development, improved service to employers and the public, and advancements within the right of way profession. IRWA is the unsurpassed source of right of way educational programs and professional services worldwide.

Billions of dollars are spent annually in the acquisition, management, and transfer of rights of way. With the technical skills required for proficiency in this complex activity, IRWA’s specialized education and training programs provide an essential foundation for right of way professionals around the world.

President’s Greeting - Chris Hall, MAI

Welcome to the IRWA Tennessee Chapter Website. The Tennessee Chapter has some tremendous resources and links so feel free to look around and familiarize yourself with the people and opportunities available thru the IRWA.

We are coming off a tremendous year for our chapter having just hosted the IRWA National Convention at Opryland in June of 2016. This convention was one of the most successful and the credit goes to the members and associates who volunteered their time and efforts to make it a memorable event. 

Our educational offerings for the chapter have produced record numbers of participants not only on a state level but also at the national level. Chapter 32 was recognized as having the 4th largest classroom attendance in all of the IRWA. This was accomplished through the hard work and effort of Bill Medley, our Education Chairman, as well as many others who work with Bill. We plan to continue this into the coming year and hope to produce many other designated members in addition to those who received their designations within this past year.
