Section 106 Practitioners Workshop

The Section 106 Practitioners Workshop is a two-day course in which participants explore best practices and build skills in the application of the Section 106 review process to federal undertakings. The course is well-suited to individuals who participate in Section 106 reviews on a routine basis and need to further develop or maintain fluency in the vocabulary and concepts of Section 106 review in complex situations. Small group and other exercises aid the participants to:

  • Apply vocabulary and procedural benchmarks of the Section 106 review process in real-world scenarios,
  • Diagnose issues with and improve coordination of a Section 106 review with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA),
  • Identify challenges with and strategies to improve consultation with Indian tribes/Native Hawaiian Organizations and other consulting parties to facilitate historic preservation outcomes and agreement,
  • Anticipate and experiment with best practices to avoid common pitfalls and roadblocks in Section 106 review, and
  • Apply risk assessment tools to expedite review timeframes and improve the effectiveness of Section 106 consultation.


This course is for cultural resources, environmental, and legal practitioners and project managers/decision makers with current experience participating in Section 106 reviews. Participants should have a working knowledge of the four steps within the Section 106 review process. 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. You may register for the Section 106 Agreements Seminar and this course in the same week.
