August 2020 President's Message

    President's Message

    Hello Chapter 4 Members!
     
    I would like to introduce myself to you as the new President for IRWA Puget Sound Chapter 4. My name is Jesse Ray, SR/WA, and I have been a member of the IRWA since 2012 when I began my Young Professional journey. My first week in right of way was unique to say the least, and included some manual labor at the Annual Education Conference in Seattle. It was memorable because the Clown from Edmonton actually taught me how to juggle in the Exhibitor Hall.
     
    I am currently a Project Manager at Contract Land Staff in Bellevue, Washington. I grew up in Kenmore, Washington and now live in Lynnwood, about 30 minutes north of Bellevue. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors in the sun riding my dirt bike, jet skiing, hiking, and camping with friends and family.
     
    We are experiencing very unique and challenging times, and we face more challenges ahead. Travel and gathering restrictions have restricted our ability to meet in person as an association. Despite these circumstances, the Chapter’s business must go on. You are invited to the Chapter 4 Planning Session being hosted this Saturday, August 8th from 9am – 1 pm at the Contract Land Staff office in Bellevue: 2800 156th Ave SE, Suite 200 in Bellevue, Washington. If you are uncomfortable attending the planning session in person, you have the option to attend via Zoom virtual meeting by following the link below. This is completely voluntary. I will also be sending out traditional emails to the Chapter members of upcoming meetings, classes, and information
