The National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP) will initiate the new webinar series, on Thursday April 7, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. (EST) with a session on the final guidance, “Appropriate Use of Mitigation and Monitoring and Clarifying the Appropriate Use of Mitigated Findings of No Significant Impact” under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) issued by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) on January 14, 2011. Horst Greczmiel, CEQ associate director for NEPA oversight, will provide an overview of the guidance that outlines best practices for agencies when making mitigation commitments, and sets forth guidelines for agencies when adopting a mitigated Finding of No Significant Impact. The guidance was developed as part of CEQ's broad effort to modernize and reinvigorate federal agency implementation of NEPA, initially announced in February 2010. The new guidance affects the evaluation and adoption of mitigation and monitoring requirements in both environmental assessments and environmental impact statements. Mr. Greczmiel will be joined by NAEP board member and Sapphos Environmental, Inc. President, Marie Campbell, who will provide examples of mitigation monitoring and reporting programs that have been required in California since 1996. We look forward to you joining us for NAEP’s inaugural webinar!
