Sheraton Phoenix Downtown, 340 N 3rd Street, Phoenix, AZ

This NEPA Essentials Workshop will cover National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) basics, including policies, procedures, and environmental documents necessary for successful compliance. It is primarily designed for new and midlevel NEPA practitioners and will inform agency staff, consultants, regulators, applicants, and other interested professionals about best NEPA practices. NEPA is a far-reaching law that applies to virtually all U.S. federal agencies and most activities that affect the environment. Many state, local, and private undertakings must be evaluated pursuant to NEPA if they receive federal funding, require federal permits, or would take place on federal land. The key to successfully implementing NEPA is attaining a working knowledge of the regulations, legal interpretations, and typical federal agency practices. This workshop will cover all of these aspects of NEPA. Workshop topics include:

  • NEPA’s legal and regulatory framework
  • Determining whether NEPA applies to a proposed action
  • Key steps in the NEPA environmental review process
  • Determining which type of NEPA document to prepare
  • Scoping for NEPA analyses
  • Successful integration of NEPA with other environmental laws
  • Direct, indirect, and cumulative impact analysis
  • Determining significance of impacts
  • Developing and evaluating a reasonable range of alternatives
  • Writing adequate and feasible mitigation measures
  • Legal adequacy of NEPA documents and NEPA case law

On-site registration is still available!
