Lauren Kodama Roenicke

IRWA Professional of the Year Award – San Diego Chapter 11

Rincon Consultants, Inc.’s Lauren Kodama Roenicke is the 2021 recipient of the San Diego Chapter 11 International Right-of-Way Association (IRWA) Professional of the Year Award! This is an honor bestowed on one IRWA professional each year.  Lauren was recognized for her consistent, detailed, and unwavering support of the IRWA organization during this challenging virtual pandemic world.

Lauren has been a member of the local IRWA Chapter since 2014 and during that time she:

  • Co-founded the IRWA Young Professionals Group,
  • Served as a Board Chair,
  • Served as Treasurer (1 year),
  • Served as Secretary (1 year),
  • Served as Vice President (2020 COVID year), and
  • Currently serves as President of the San Diego Chapter.

Although this year has been mainly handled virtually – which had its own challenges – Lauren managed to organize two in person/mainly outdoor networking events to the delight of this close IRWA networking group. In words given by her colleague board members at the awards luncheon, “This year’s recipient has led every chapter board meeting [virtually] and taken on every task with a hug smile and a positive attitude. I watched [Lauren] work tirelessly to use this year as a stepping stone into returning to ‘normal’ life and increase our chapter engagement.”

Congratulations, Lauren!
