Section 106 Agreements Seminar

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. Discussion and group exercises aid course participants to:

  • Determine when consulting parties are ready to begin drafting a Section 106 Agreement,
  • Distinguish whether a Section 106 Memorandum of Agreement or Programmatic Agreement is best suited to your needs,
  • Document avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures as clear, implementable agreement stipulations, and
  • Determine when enough consultation has occurred to begin signing the Section 106 Agreement.

All courses are taught by ACHP staff with expertise and practical experience in managing Section 106 cases and developing agreement documents.

Pre-requisites

This course is for cultural resources, environmental, and legal practitioners and project managers/decision makers with current experience participating in Section 106 reviews.

Those without such knowledge or experience are encouraged to take an introductory course, such as the NEW Section 106 Essentials or other similar course, prior to this course.
