For the advancement of Right-of-Way Professionals


About Us


The Pittsburgh Right of Way Group (PIT ROW Group) is a network of land professionals, for those in the tri-state area working in Oil & Gas, Electric & Utilities, Telecommunications and Transportation. This includes, but not limited to, Acquisition, Construction, Engineering, Environmental, GIS Mapping, Inspection, Legal, Permitting, Production, Safety, Survey & Title. We believe having a greater understanding of each component involved in a project will deliver a better product. Come share your knowledge and experience, network with others across the different specialist and enjoy a good lunch.


Our History:  The group was established in August of 2017, our goal is to have IRWA presence in the Pittsburgh region. Membership in the IRWA isn't required to participate in the group, but it is encouraged (for more information on the IRWA visit https://www.irwaonline.org).

The PIT ROW Group meets the second Tuesday of each for a lunch and learn, featuring a monthly guest speaker. Speakers typically present a topic for about 15-20 minutes and then we open up the floor for questions and discussion. Luncheons are held in the Southpointe area, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.
