Section 106 Webinar Series

The ACHP's Fall 2017 Section 106 Webinar Series

Please join us for one-hour webinars on three topics:

“Preservation Compliance and Property Disposal”
Level: Intermediate


When a federal agency determines 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. The ACHP’s Liaison to the General Services Administration, Kirsten Kulis, and Program Analyst Katharine Kerr will guide participants through the different means of disposal and help them develop a working knowledge of which historic preservation responsibilities apply. Learn how to avoid and resolve adverse effects and address other historic property management challenges.

“Meeting the Reasonable and Good Faith Identification Standard in Section 106 Review”

Experienced Section 106 practitioners will benefit from this opportunity to explore the steps necessary to make a reasonable effort to identify historic properties for a specific undertaking and to carry out such identification efforts in good faith. Join Tom McCulloch, Senior Archaeologist and Assistant Director in the Office of Federal Agency Programs, and Kelly Fanizzo, Associate General Counsel, to learn about this regulatory standard while practicing its application to case scenarios.

“Cultural Landscapes: Identification and Effects Assessment”
Level: Intermediate


Learn how to identify cultural landscapes and to assess how their character-defining qualities could be affected by federal projects undergoing Section 106 review. Participants will be introduced to a range of features - natural and man-made - that should be considered in the identification and evaluation of changes to cultural landscapes. This intermediate-level webinar led by Nancy Brown, ASLA, the ACHP’s Liaison to the Bureau of Land Management, will explore examples of how federal agencies are balancing effects to cultural and historic landscapes with project needs.
