Section 106 Webinar Series

Registration is now open for the ACHP's Winter Section 106 Webinar Series. Enrollment is limited to 25 students to facilitate interaction with instructors. Please review the cost and cancellation information below before registering. Registration closes 48 hours prior to the webinar start time.

Managing Confidential Information and Section 304 of NHPA
Intermediate level
1 hour, same course offered each of dates below
Thursday, 12/18/14       2:00 p.m. EST
Tuesday, 1/6/15           2:00 p.m. EST

Section 106 is a public process, but there are circumstances when information about historic properties should be kept confidential. Assistant General Counsel Kelly Fanizzo will outline the types of information that may be protected from release (including in response to FOIA requests) by Section 304 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Consider how Section 304 may apply to different consultation scenarios and learn how to address issues regarding the scope and limits of Section 304 with Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and other parties concerned about the confidentiality of sensitive information.

Archaeological Sites and Section 106: A Discussion on Identification and Evaluation
Beginner level
60-90 minutes, same course offered each of dates below
Thursday, 1/15/15         11:00 a.m. EST
Monday, 1/26/15           2:00 p.m. EST

Participants in Section 106 reviews often find themselves discussing archaeological site identification and evaluation. But what if the terms and methods are not familiar? Program Analyst John Eddins, an archaeologist, demystifies some factors that influence delineation of the Area of Potential Effects and helps participants identify issues to consider in developing an archaeological identification plan. Learn to consider the multiple levels of significance that different stakeholders may ascribe to such properties. While this webinar is appropriate for beginners, some familiarity with the Section 106 regulations is recommended.

Preservation Compliance and Property Disposal
Intermediate level
1 hour, same course offered each of dates below
Thursday, 2/19/15        2:00 p.m. EST
Tuesday, 3/3/15          2:00 p.m. EST

When a federal agency determines that their property is no longer needed for discharge of their responsibilities, such property may be excessed to another federal agency or disposed out of federal ownership. Both paths lead to specific historic preservation compliance responsibilities under Sections 110 and/or 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The ACHP's GSA Liaison, Kirsten Kulis, and Program Analyst Katharine Kerr will guide participants through the different means of disposal and help them develop a working knowledge of what historic preservation responsibilities apply. Learn how to avoid adverse effects and address other historic property management challenges.

Coming in March...
An Overview of Program Alternatives
Advanced level
1 hour, dates TBD. Registration will open in January

The Section 106 regulations offer five program alternatives to tailor the review process to specific federal agency needs. Charlene Dwin Vaughn, Assistant Director in the Office of Federal Agency Programs, and Associate General Counsel Javier Marqués will familiarize participants with the program alternatives. Also, learn how to plan the consultation effort needed to develop a program alternative. This advanced-level program will guide Section 106 users, especially federal agency staff, toward opportunities for greater efficiency in their compliance process.

All webinars are taught by ACHP staff instructors with practical experience in Section 106 review and in developing program improvements.
