RWIEF  Events

Monday Night Event

Most of us don’t spend time thinking about the future of our profession. Fortunately, RWIEF does. As a non-profit foundation, we support IRWA in funding education programing.

At each annual conference, the Monday Night Event is our primary fundraiser. This event provides the opportunity to network in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Food, live music and auctions are held in venues reflecting the flavor and tradition of the host city. Profits from the event are used for education programs spanning technical knowledge to interpersonal relations to leadership training and more.

So, where does Foundation funding come from? YOU! IRWA members, along with leading industry corporations generously donate money along with their time, energy and passion to raise funds. Thank you for helping RWIEF raise the level of expertise in our industry!

Monday Night Event 2021

Golf Tournament 2021

Golf Tournament

The Annual Golf Tournament is sponsored by the Right of Way International Education Foundation and the Canadian Right of Way Education Foundation. Corporations, individuals, chapters, regions, and right of way consultant companies sponsor individual holes, helping to boost funding for education programs. All proceeds generated from the event are overseen by the Foundations, who in turn allocate those funds toward right of way education programing.

Ride for the Foundation FUNdraiser

Steve Grandon has taken on a personal challenge to raise funds for RWIEF by combining two things he really enjoys – the IRWA and motorcycles.  Each year Steve rides his Harley from the current conference site to next year’s conference site.  With the Hog’s odometer, Steve created a contest where participants purchase a ticket and guess the mileage from site to site.  The participant guessing the mileage closest to the actual odometer reading wins a cash prize.  Steve’s 2020 event sponsor is Liberty Core Consultants and the cash prize up for grabs is $1,000.
