The section had its initial meeting in Louisville, Kentucky on 24 May 2002. Since then, the Annual General Meetings have featured an industry conference and field trips of interest to the Signals and Communications community.
The next major section event will be the 2021 AGM to be held at the Railway Interchange Convention September 26-29 in Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to the AGM a technical visit will be arranged. Other planned events include the 2021 IRSE Convention tentatively planned for November and a Presidential Program Technical Paper tentatively planned for December. Details of North American section events can be found on the events page.
Membership of the IRSE is required before you can become a member of the North American Section of the IRSE. You will then need to complete a North American section application form.
Copies of the Introduction to North American Railway Signaling text book may be purchased at a reduced rate by IRSE members.
