IRWA Chapter 5 was established in 1953 and covers Kansas and the western half of Missouri. Chapter 5 is part of ​Region 3, which includes eastern Missouri (St. Louis), Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota and Nebraska.

Our members come from all walks of life such as Government, Water and School Districts, Public Works and Redevelopment Agencies, Utilities, and private consultants such as appraisers, title specialists, acquisition, relocation specialists, attorneys, and engineers. Our members have an unparalleled wealth of experience and expertise that we share with one another at our educational conferences, classes, and networking events.

Join us at our next chapter meeting! Meetings are typically held on the first or second Friday of the month each quarter. Besides Kansas City, meetings are sometimes rotated between the larger cities in the Chapter coverage area, such as Topeka, Lawrence, Springfield, Branson or Wichita.


If you have news or events you'd like to share with the chapter,
​email Jen Berry at



Bill Wright, SR/WA, R/W-NAC
