ACHP Training on Section 106 Scheduled in Honolulu

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation will offer “Section 106 Essentials” July 19-20 and “Advanced Section 106 Seminar” July 21 in Honolulu.

The training is the only Section 106 course taught by the federal agency responsible for administering the National Historic Preservation Act’s Section 106 review process. The Essentials class is a two-day course designed for those who are new to federal historic preservation compliance or those who want a refresher on the Section 106 regulations and review process. This course explains the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, which applies any time a federal, federally assisted, or federally approved activity might affect a property listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

The Advanced Section 106 Seminar focuses on the effective management of complex or controversial undertakings that require compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Taught in a smaller, interactive setting, this course encourages group discussion and problem solving. The seminar is designed for experienced Section 106 users who are already familiar with the regulations. The curriculum focuses on the challenges of seeking consensus and resolving adverse effects to historic properties. Class is limited to 25 participants.
