As part of its Continuing Education program, ACRA is pleased to present a webinar entitled “Section 106 Review for Planners and CRM Professionals.” The webinar focuses on helping cultural resource and planning professionals understand the required processes, as outlined in Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and administered by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, for federally funded projects to identify and mitigate impacts on historic and cultural properties. The webinar will address program requirements, describe how and when local governments and cultural resource professionals are involved in the process, provide examples of actual projects and mitigation strategies, and include handouts and exercises designed to assist participants to understand and better manage their involvement in the process.
2.0 AICP credits will be issued to participants in this program. The event can be found on the American Planning Association website here.
