Hear Ted Boling, Associate Director of NEPA Oversight, White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), talk in person about CEQ’s new Draft Climate Change guidance and the proposed changes to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Implementing Regulations (public comment opening soon).  This interactive workshop provides participants with current thinking and practice trends on how to conduct NEPA environmental analysis with a focus on purpose and need, connected actions, range of alternatives, and expediting environmental impact statements.  This enhanced workshop trains environmental professionals and practitioners in implementing “One Federal Decision” (E.O. 13807) and refining your practice related to NEPA project management and streamlining through regulatory integration.  The workshop also highlights recent NEPA case decisions and discusses current trends for mitigation and indirect/cumulative impact analysis. Target audience is mid to senior career NEPA planners, decision-makers, experienced consultants, agency regulators, and attorneys who require an in-depth understanding of NEPA law and policy.
