Welcome to the Northwest Chapter of the River Management Society! Comprised of RMS members from the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming the NW Chapter is the largest RMS chapter averaging 150 members. Our goal is to further the mission of RMS by providing a regional forum for members to network, learn, and expand their knowledge of river management through participation and involvement in NW Chapter activities while also enjoying themselves. The chapter has a diverse membership, representing private, educational and governmental institutions and organizations.
Your chapter officers work hard to represent you and facilitate an active membership. Chapter Bylaws provide direction for the functioning of the NW Chapter. Chapter accomplishments are many and we hope upcoming activities will interest you. Join RMS now!
