Conference Highlights


Dear Colleague:


After a brief hiatus, we are excited to bring back our comprehensive two-day NEPA

conference. In addition to Congressionally-enacted streamlining legislation, the

Council on the Environment has issued a number of new directives, including one

addressing Climate Change effects and -- as always -- the courts have been busy

publishing new decisions.


Your faculty will be comprised of experts who are at the forefront of NEPA issues

in California, to provide you with the latest NEPA legal updates, best practices, and

policy perspectives.


Whether you are an attorney, planner, consultant, agency staff, or project applicant,

you will benefit from the knowledge you gain as you hear all points of view. Plus, you

will have the opportunity to network with expert speakers and fellow attendees.


At the conference, you will get the latest information and updates on:

• NEPA Primer

• Case Law Update

• Cumulative Impacts 

• NEPA Streamlining

• Comparison of Case Law in 9th Circuit and Other Circuits

• New Developments in Climate Change

• CEQA and NEPA Coordination

• Connected Actions

• Consideration of Alternatives

• Cultural Resources Issues

… and much more!

If you are considering only one NEPA Conference in the next year, this is the one to attend.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
