RWIEF Summer 2019 Foundation Newsletter

    Happy New Year from the trustees of the Right of Way International Education Foundation! We are working to try to insure that all members of the International Right of Way Association are familiar with the RWIEF and CRWEF and our goal of funding right of way education initiatives. With continuing education and professional development being essential to the growth and advancement of our profession, the foundation focuses on generating financial contributions and allocating those funds on behalf of the right of way profession.

    In past years the foundations began providing writing quarterly articles for publication in chapter newsletters.  Our hope is to raise member awareness of both RWIEF and CRWEF by keeping chapters updated on foundation news and events.  In case you missed any of these articles, they are archived on the RWIEF website at  Go to the “RWIEF Tools” tab, then select “Chapter Newsletter Articles”.

    In an effort to reach all members of the International Right of Way Association on the need for funding to keep our educational offerings on the cutting edge attached to this email is the 2019 spring quarter article. RWIEF YP Trustee Brett Farner, SRWA was ask to prepare this article with his perspective on volunteering. Brett has prepared a fabulous article with a great message. If you feel appropriate please include this article in your chapter’s newsletter or on your chapter website

    The Right of Way International Education Foundation has a great web site which is constantly being updated with the latest information on educational initiatives. If your chapter has a web site I would ask that you add a link to the RWIEF web site and encourage your chapter members to visit the site and become familiar with our goal of funding new course development, revamping of existing courses, web-based training programs, and educational summits.

    On behalf of the trustees thank you for your support of the RWIEF and CRWEF and your leadership in the International Right of Way Association.

    If you have any questions and/or comments please feel free to contact any of the RWIEF trustees……you can find the trustee’s contact information on the RWIEF web site.

    Wishing you all of the best in 2019!
