We are very excited about the growth of NJABA over the past few years. This year, we exceeded 800 members for the first time in the history of NJABA!!! This growth is fueled by the support NJABA provides to behavior analysts in New Jersey through our workgroups, advocacy, and presentations. One of the most important events is our Annual Conference, which will be held in a hybrid format on March 3, 2023 at the Palace at Somerset Park and virtually through BehaviorLive.
Although our organization’s growth has been impressive, there’s still a lot of room to grow. As of August 2022, there are nearly 5,000 certificants (i.e., BCBA-D, BCBA, BCaBA, and RBTs) in New Jersey. Thus, we still have a long way to go to represent all New Jersey behavior analysts. We continue to explore more ways to provide value to our members, including a workshop from a nationally prominent speaker the day before the main conference. We have also created a new membership category (Behavior Technicians) to be more inclusive. Additionally, our University Liaisons have been doing an amazing job of increasing engagement from students, the future of our organization.
If you have colleagues who aren’t NJABA members, please share with them the benefits of membership and encourage them to join. Stay tuned for more information about our Annual Conference.
NJABA’s mission is to advance the science and evidence-based practice of behavior analysis through research, education, service delivery, and advocacy in the state of New Jersey.
NJABA’s vision is a statewide community in which behavior analysts have the research, training, and resources they need to improve people’s lives.
