Posts Tagged ‘FABA 2019’

A lot of people think that conferencing is just about getting CE’s for certification renewal. Conferencing actually has multiple purposes. First, it is an opportunity to learn about a new area of interest. Remember, the BCBA credential is an entry level credential. The scope of practice for a new BCBA is extremely limited. Thus, conferencing can be a great way to start training on a new area/scope of practice.

Regional Conferences (i.e., your state association such as Florida ABA or CT ABA, or Mass ABA) provide an opportunity for you to remain current about issues within your state. Perhaps your state is trying to push for licensing of behavior analysis. You need to attend to be in the know! For Florida, the current issues around medicaid are a key focus for many providers.

Did you know you also have an ethical obligation to your state association? yes! under the BACB Professional and Ethical Compliance Code, 6.01 b), “behavior analysts have an obligation to participate in behavior-analytic professional and scientific organizations or activities.” Therefore, you should conference because it’s ethical!

Conferencing is a great time to network with other providers, scientists, product development teams, and sometimes payors. Put your best foot forward and make those connections!

Finally, conferencing is a wonderful time to see friends and colleagues. Rest up before conferences so you have the energy and stamina to get it all in. Check out these photos from our fun times together.
