The group meets regularly and holds an annual conference each spring on various topics within the field of Behavior Analysis. The conference is often well-attended by community BCBAs and BCaBAs, teachers, parents, students, and faculty.

  • Attending professional conferences, including the Association for Behavior Analysis, International, the Florida Association for Behavior Analysis, and the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts.
