The Section 106 Agreements Seminar is a one-day course that builds skills in managing consultation and documenting agreed upon steps to resolve adverse effects in a Section 106 review of a federal undertaking. The seminar is designed for cultural resources, environmental, and legal practitioners who are fluent in the Section 106 implementing regulations and the review process. The curriculum provides instruction on how to build consensus and develop agreement documents that can be successfully implemented.

The NEW Section 106 Essentials is a one-day course for anyone interested in an overview of the Section 106 review process. The course is particularly helpful for managers/decision makers and early-career cultural resources practitioners from federal agencies, State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian Organizations, applicants in the Section 106 process, and others.
