PROVISIONAL AGENDA

Call to Order 

Chair’s Welcome

TOPICS

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is now recruiting for a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Liaison/Program Analyst within the ACHP’s Office of Federal Agency Programs (OFAP), located in Washington, DC. The OFAP plays a key role in meeting the ACHP’s mission to advise the President and Congress on historic preservation matters, and oversees the Section 106 review process.

On May 30, the Hawaii Star-Advertiser published a column in which Chair Sara Bronin explains why she believes Native Hawaiian Organizations should be exempt from certain federal review requirements.

Bronin writes, “Issuing a Section 106 exemption for projects like these would not only reduce barriers for NHOs; it would also recognize officially the vital role Indigenous Knowledge plays in preserving important Native Hawaiian cultural sites.”
