10 Chapter Transportation Chairs E-Mail Group - Outreach First E-mail Outreach contact (Volume 1, Number 1) from ITC sent January 18 th, 2007 generated interest and positive comments. The second E-mail Outreach (Volume 2, Number 1) was sent from ITC on November 15, 2007. Up-to-date contacts for our chapter and “community of interest” database are steadily increasing. The 1 st broadcast included basic committee information (mission, current committee roster and minutes from our Anaheim committee meeting), and an invitation to communicate with us on a variety of topics.
Outreach Continued: The second edition was a follow up containing new and additional information for continuing the program. 11
12 2008-2009 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 1: Develop session topics that involve international or bi-lateral issues for the 2009 Annual Conference in Indianapolis Measure of Success: Six of the approved ITC sessions for Austin had content that had application for Canadian and other members. The Indianapolis Conference is expected to contain the same. There are two standing sessions, the “Federal Agency Update” and “AASHTO Update”, and even those probably have some relevance for right of way professionals from Canada, South Africa, Australia Japan, Korea and others. These sessions may be partnered with other committees.
13 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 2: Present ITC sessions for the 2009 Annual Conference in Indianapolis that deal with issues in several transportation modes (not just highways), as well as at least 1 session on communications/negotiations. Measure of Success: At least 6 of the ITC sessions for Austin had “multi-modal” or communication/negotiation applications and the 2009 conference will follow suit.
14 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 3: Focus on communication, outreach, and participation with all committee members and our “Community of Practice”. Measure of Success: (A)All ITC members have a voice in developing Session Topics and we were successful in getting 13 ITC sessions approved for Austin with 11 being a reality. (B)The ITC is continuing to develop our current list of Chapter Transportation Chairs. Our first e-mail broadcast to the Chapter Chairs went out in early 2006 and the second in 2007. This is planned to be a large part of our outreach efforts following a sub-committee re- structuring.
15 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 3: Focus on communication, outreach, and participation with all committee members and our "Community of Practice“. Measure of Success: (C)The ITC, Asset Management, Local Public Agency and Survey Committee’s have established and continue to build on a partnership in sponsoring sessions at the Annual Conference. (D)The ITC is looking for other ways to partner with the Utilities, Relocation and other International Committees. We have taken the lead and enlisted four International Committees as co-sponsors of five educational sessions for Austin. We will strive to equal this in 2009.
16 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 3: Focus on communication, outreach, and participation with all committee members and our "Community of Practice“. Measure of Success: (E)The ITC will again to attempt to sponsor a display booth and promotion of the Association at the 2007 Mid-South Right of Way Conference. Attendance 90+ (F)The ITC will again attempt to participate in the Northwest Right of Way Conference in 2008 by providing a welcome message, magazine, SR/WA and specialty designation information, and membership application in each registrants conference packet. Attendance 150+
17 2007 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 3: Focus on communication, outreach, and participation with all committee members and our "Community of Practice“. Measure of Success: (G) Our Region 4 ITC Rep will again be asked to attempt to hold and staff an IRWA information booth in the exhibit area at the “Mid-Atlantic Workshop”. This annual event was attended by over 300 ROW professionals in 2006– most of whom are not currently IRWA members. We plan to participate again in 2008 as IRWA was denied participation in 2007. This is an excellent outreach opportunity and we suggest that IRWA develop a strategy for having a presence at similar Annual ROW Workshops across the country.
18 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 3: Focus on communication, outreach, and participation with all committee members and our "Community of Practice“. Measure of Success: (H) The ITC participated with Chapter 77 with an IRWA booth at the Tallahassee, Florida Board of Realtors Annual EXPO in 2008. 99% of the attendees were unaware of IRWA. The Expo was not held in 2007 but is anticipated for 2008-09. (I)The annual ASSHTO event was attended by over 300 ROW professionals in 2008 and the ITC recommends that IRWA develop a strategy for having a standing presence at similar Annual ROW Events across the country.
19 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan Yes No Goal # 4: Sponsor several articles for RIGHT OF WAY magazine within the next twelve months. Measure of Success: Articles submitted for publication by ITC members Billy Medley, SR/WA, Don Corrigan, Terrel Heather and Mike Jones were published in 2007-2008 and are included in the listing of personal projects. Additionally several other members have committed to authoring articles in 2008-2009
20 2007-2008 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Committee Strategic Plan YesNo Goal # 5: Foster the development of a “ROW Community of Practice” that is both internal and external to IRWA. Measure of Success: (A)We continue to communicate with FHWA, FAA and FTA Realty Program Experts on program issues on a regular basis.
21 What’s working well…………… 1.Keeping a broad Transportation focus Our current membership is diverse: 9 Government employees 15 ROW consultant employees 2 retiree’s 2 members are from Canada 2 Support Seven of our Austin sessions had cross- functional or multi-modal implications We have industry reps in aviation, highways, transit – Federal, State & Local
22 What’s working…. but can improve 1.Sub-Committee Structure More interaction and involvement by members of the sub-committees Members will volunteer for their choice of sub-committees and provide a personal project pertaining to that committee More effective results - because the Sub-Committee members take ownership in their areas of responsibility
23 What needs improvement…………… We need to work on improving our 2-way communications, developing more active participation and getting effective feedback on our performance. This applies within the ITC… between the ITC and other Committees… between the Committees and the Regions... between the Committees and the IEC
24 What’s working…… but must improve 1.Our Outreach Initiatives Our Chapter Chairs E-mail Group has started to take off – response has been good! However this effort still needs work with the communication sub-committee Difficult to measure the value of our presence at national and regional ROW events Our communication subcommittee must take the lead working with Chair & Vice Chair for effective implementation.
