Message from the President

Chapter 74 Members,

I know that you join me in thanking Alex Gale for his leadership as Chapter President 2018 – 2019.  Chapter 74 is thriving thanks to Alex’s commitment as well the commitment of our volunteers.  The September Seminar and the Transportation Symposium are two examples of the excellent education opportunities we benefited from under Alex’s leadership.  Alex will continue to serve our Chapter as 2-year Director.

It is my honor to serve as President of Chapter 74 this year.  Please welcome our officers and committee members.  Tara O’Neal will serve as Vice President, Barbara Price will serve as Treasurer, and Richard Scholtz joins the board as Secretary.  Virginia Anderson will continue her service to our Chapter as 1-year director.  Together we are planning to provide more education opportunities for our members and work with other Right-of-Way professionals to demonstrate the benefits of IR/WA membership.

We are off to a great start with the upcoming “Bring the Heat: Education in College Station”, this year’s theme for the Region 2 Seminar and Educational Courses in College Station on July 31st, August 1st and 2nd.  The 2019 September Seminar will be held at the San Marcos Activity Center on September 6th.

The Bylaws Committee is diligently working on updating the Chapter’s Bylaws to be more consistent with International’s Bylaws.  Keep an eye out for emails and other communications about the proposed changes.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve!  Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] with any recommendations or suggestions.
