CM |

Intermediate level
1 hour, same course offered each of dates below
Wednesday, 3/23/16 11:00 a.m. EDT
Tuesday, 3/29/16 2:00 p.m. EDT

What are a federal agency’s Section 106 responsibilities when disasters strike or an emergency situation arises? What opportunities do stakeholders have to participate in such cases? Prepare for the unexpected by learning how to move response actions through 106 reviews more efficiently or how to participate in expedited consultations. Program Analyst Jaime Loichinger will coach participants through a variety of response and recovery scenarios with help from Meghan Hesse, FEMA’s ACHP detailee. Hear how new initiatives, including development of the Unified Federal Review (UFR) process and a recently-designated FEMA prototype Programmatic Agreement, offer opportunities for efficiencies once recovery efforts begin..

Innovative Approaches to Section 106 Mitigation
CM | 1

Advanced level
1 hour, same course offered each of dates below
Wednesday, 4/27/16 11:00 a.m. EDT
Tuesday, 5/10/16 2:00 p.m. EDT
Large-scale federal projects and their effects to historic landscapes are challenging Section 106 participants to look beyond tried-and-true mitigation approaches. Consider ways to develop innovative ideas for resolving adverse effects in the consultation process during this webinar with Program Analyst Katry Harris and the ACHP’s Liaison to the BLM, Nancy Brown. The session will highlight examples of big picture mitigation strategies that focus on project-scale outcomes. Participants will have an opportunity to apply their own creativity to a situation that begs for something beyond the typical historical documentation approach.

Managing Confidential Information and Section 304
CM | 1

Intermediate level
1 hour, same course offered each of dates below
Wednesday, 5/11/16 11:00 a.m. EDT
Tuesday, 5/17/16 2:00 p.m. EDT

Section 106 is a public process, but there are circumstances when information about historic properties should be kept confidential.  Assistant General Counsel Kelly Fanizzo and Senior Program Analyst Tom McCulloch 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 in this intermediate level webinar. 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.

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

American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) members can earn Certification Maintenance (CM) credits for this activity.
