ROWSC Call for Nominations and Applications



Right-of-Way Stewardship Council


Nominations and Applications Invited through January 31, 2022


The Right-of-Way Stewardship Council (ROWSC) is an accreditation program that has established standards for responsible right-of-way vegetation management along corridors. The program promotes the application of Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) and best management practices to utility vegetation managers to maintain power system reliability and address ecological concerns. 


The ROWSC is inviting nominations and applications for 3 year terms for Council seats addressing the following categories of representation:

Environmental NGO/Conservation (2)

Academic/Research (1)

Utility Vegetation Management (UVM) Consultant (1)

Utility Vegetation Management (UVM) Supplier (1)

Utility Industry Organization (1)


The Council is committed to ensuring stakeholder representation within our organization and decision making to support a rigorous and credible standard and program.  The current list of Council members is available at:


The ROWSC accreditation provides standards of excellence for environmental stewardship and presents the opportunity for companies to demonstrate their commitment to such standards. Third-party recognition ensures an independent, proven process to convey credibility and bring recognition to IVM programs. The benefits of the accreditation reach beyond the practitioner’s sphere; it has the potential to positively impact the industry, communities, stakeholders, and agencies.


The Right-of-Way Stewardship Council is a program managed by Dovetail Partners, a Minneapolis-based environmental, non-profit 501(c)(3) think tank. Dovetail provides program and organizational leadership services, working closely with the Council members.
