President’s Welcome

December 2023

Dear Members,

As we approach the end of another incredible year, I want to express my gratitude to each and every one of you for contributing to the phenomenal success of NJABA. Your dedication and support have propelled us to another record high in membership. This year, our organization experienced unprecedented growth, a testament to the values and dedication of the behavior analytic community in New Jersey.

Looking back on the past year, Dr. Greg MacDuff was our second recipient of NJABA’s Distinguished Service Award based on his many years of committed service, clinical work and research. Please consider nominating someone you believe is deserving of this award. See our announcement for the 2024 Distinguished Service Award here.

Looking ahead, mark your calendars for our upcoming Annual Conference on Friday, April 26, 2024 and our Pre-Conference workshop and reception on Thursday, April 25, 2024. These are opportunities to engage, learn, and grow within our community. Stay tuned for sponsorship opportunities, as we invite you to be part of the continued success story of NJABA.

Thank you to my fellow Board Members for their many contributions, their collegiality and their wisdom. Please be on the alert for open board positions in the upcoming year. The 2023 year also marked the first year that NJABA has partnered with Advocacy and Management Group as we look to increase the footprint of NJABA in Trenton and throughout New Jersey.

In the midst of our professional commitments, let’s not forget the importance of taking a moment to relax and cherish the joys of the holiday season. Amidst the hustle and bustle, make sure to spend quality time with friends and family, nourishing the connections that bring balance to our lives. Make sure to take time for yourselves as well, whether it be a quiet walk on a cold December morning, or perhaps a vacation somewhere warm.

Thank you for an amazing year. Wishing you all a joyful holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year!

Patrick Progar, Ph.D, BCBA-D

President, NJABA
