Advocating for quality Behavior Analytical services and 

legitimacy in the District

We're excited to have some updates for all of our members, as well as some opportunities in which you can get involved.!  DCABA has been hard at work developing our mission and focusing on becoming incorporated.  We're getting closer every day, but there's still a lot of work that needs to be done.  

Current Status of DCABA:  

  • DCABA has elected a board and holds meetings biweekly.  These meetings are open to all members! 
  • As of March 20th, DCABA is an affiliate chapter of ABAI!  You can check us out here
  • We became incorporated in February 2018
  • Networking is an important part of the work that DCABA is doing right now.  We have developed relationships with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology as well as John Hopkins University. 
  • We applied and officially received our Non-Profit status in 2019! 

DCABA Goals:

  • Create January 2020 Conference--Volunteer today for our Conference Committee to help us plan it!
  • Become an affiliate with APBA. We are currently in the process of applying.
  • Recruit more parent members - DCABA wants to make sure we have representation from parents to  hear what their needs are in DC and best advocate for families in DC!
  • Become an official CEU provider - DCABA wants to offer CEUs that are meaningful to our members.  Please let us know if there are specific topics that you'd like to see covered.  Until we become a CEU provider, we will continue to provide quality CEUs through the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, or in partnership with other partnered ACE providers!

Get Involved:
DCABA would love to hear from YOU!  If you'd like to attend a workgroup meeting but aren't sure when they occur, reach out to us and we'll send you a list of upcoming dates.

  • Public Policy Committee - Advise and assist the board regarding matters involving behavior analysis and governmental entities.
  • Marketing/Publications Committee: Focus on distributing information to raise awareness of behavior analysis
  • Conference/Programs Committee - Responsible for organization and management of DCABA's annual business meeting.
