President’s Welcome

April 2024

Dear NJABA Members,

Now that April has arrived, bringing new life and energy to the Garden State, April promises to be an exciting month for NJABA and its members, especially with our upcoming events.

**Pre-Conference Workshop: Thursday, April 25, 2024**
Join us for a special pre-conference workshop on April 25 at The Palace in Somerset. This workshop will set the stage for our main conference. Our speaker will be Dr. Nicole Gravina, and her talk is entitled, “OBM Strategies for Improving Staff Performance.” If you are currently in a leadership position or plan to be in a leadership position, this workshop is for you! Not only that, but we have a reception planned for that evening. Come network, eat, drink and be merry with your behavioral colleagues!

**Annual Conference: Friday, April 26, 2024**
The main conference will take place on April 26, and is also at The Palace in Somerset. With registrations pouring in, we anticipate reaching full capacity for in-person attendance. However, if we do reach capacity, we will still offer a virtual attendance option to ensure everyone can participate. There are too many stellar topics and presenters to mention here, but I will note that we are especially honored to have our Keynote presentation delivered by Dr. Florence DiGennaro Reed. The presentation is entitled, “Training Complex Professional Repertoires of Human-Service Staff.”

**Science and Behavior Analysis Conference: June 8, 2024**
Mark your calendars for our upcoming Science and Behavior Analysis Conference on June 8 at Rider University. This conference will be highlighted by our Keynote, Dr. Jeanne Donaldson, whose talk is entitled, “What Happens When We Let Students Select Their Intervention Experiences.” If that’s not enough, some of our most promising students in NJ will present on their research as well!

Don’t miss out on these exciting events! Submit your registrations soon to secure your spot and take advantage of these unique learning opportunities and collect your CEUs! We look forward to seeing you at these events! 

Patrick Progar, Ph.D, BCBA-D

President, NJABA
