Chapter 74 - Austin, TX
President’s Message
Hello Chapter 74!
It is hard to believe we are already into September. It seems the weeks and
months are flying past.
Our chapter is still growing as well with 23 new members since July 1st ,
and a total membership of 243 people. This includes 24 TxDOT members,
18 affiliate members, and 12 new members from the City of Austin. We
have an all-volunteer board that has been responsive as always to chapter
business, as well as International Headquarters’ business. We were the
16th largest chapter nationwide at the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1st); these numbers are
fluid so stay tuned. Maintaining the top 20% for IRWA says a lot about our professional networking and education offerings within Chapter 74. This is thanks to all of you.
I’ve previously mentioned that the country of Mexico has been added as a member to our Region
2 this year, as we volunteered to mentor them and help grow their education programs. This is
an historical opportunity as their goal at some point is to grow their own countrywide IRWA
program. To support our newest Region 2 member, the spring forum will be held in Cancun
Mexico in March 2016 with classes on March 9-10, a networking social the evening of the 9th,
and the region meeting on Friday the 11th. Region 2 has set this up with member discounts
from March 8-11, 2016 with all-inclusive prices. Please feel welcome to join us if you can, as the
Mexican government is supporting this new professional organization in their country and will
have representatives there as well to meet us. The Region 2 website will have information on
this also.
Our board has added two new Committee Chairs this year for Legal and Pipeline representation, which we hope will help grow these two areas in addition to our existing committees of professional disciplines. Please reach out to Chapter 74 officers and committee members and share
your interest in the organization and questions at any time. Thanks so much for your ongoing
participation and support.
Sincerely,
Patti Bell
Chapter 74 President

Committee Updates
What is Asset Management?
This fiscal year I have taken over the Asset Management Committee chair position for the chapter. I have had
several members ask me what Asset Management is and what is done at the International Asset Management
level.
Basically, Asset Management professionals at the local and international levels examine and monitor legislative changes and methods or practices pertaining to the acquisition, operation, management or disposition of
interest in right-of-way and real property. Areas of activities include interim rental and clearance of buildings
on properties acquired for rights-of-way for public purposes; disposal of real property interests including conveyance of easements, or other interests necessary for the relocation of streets or utilities; and acquisition, development, leasing of property held by public agencies including multi-use or joint use of rights-of-way and
other real property holdings.
The IRWA offers a certification in five disciplines, which includes Asset Management for the RW/AMC. The
candidate must have a minimum of 2 years of practice experience in asset management services of right-ofway related activities involving the interpretation of real estate valuation principles, semi-legal work in preparation or review of documents and an understanding of real property law. These types of work include acquisition or negotiation of leasehold interests covering public or private owned real property; negotiation for sale
of real property; acquisition or disposal of joint-use property rights; management of properties and contract
supervision; and supervision of asset management activities of right-of-way projects.
The classroom component for the candidate includes a total of 88 credit units from four disciplines including
environment issues, asset management, law and negotiation/acquisition. Additionally, a course in either ethics
or standards of practice in the right-of-way profession and a capstone exam are part of the academic process.
I hope this discussion helps provide some added clarity regarding the Asset Management discipline of the
right-of-way profession and its position within the IRWA organization.

Committee Updates
FACT & Eminent Domain Seminar
Most of you are aware of FACT (Foundation Appraisers Coalition of Texas). FACT is an organization started
in 1991 to provide real estate appraisers in Texas representation in the legislature. FACTPAC is FACT’s Political Action Committee and is responsible for advocating appraiser’s interests in the legislature. Our lobbyist is
Eric Woomer. This past legislative session, we saw several bills passed that may impact appraisers and entities
with the power of eminent domain. Other bills were in the ad valorem tax arena. FACT opposed all bills that
would be negative to appraisers, and none were passed. Summaries of the bills passed can be found in the
links below.

I’m sure there will be discussions at the upcoming Eminent Domain Seminar in San Marcos. I look forward to
seeing everyone there.
