In 2012, AMeBA started with just four members meeting to discuss the ethical responsibility for Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to have a professional organization in Maine. We became incorporated in 2014 as the Association for Maine Behavior Analysis (AMeBA), and have grown to well over one hundred members. In 2014, we held our first conference, and have since provided professional development and continuing education opportunities to our members annually each spring.
We have worked hard over the last several years, meeting regularly to discuss current issues in our state regarding our profession (including licensure and billing). We continue to seek guidance from other well-established groups such as the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) and the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA).
AMeBA holds its annual business meeting for members in conjunction with our annual conference each spring. Stay connected and join AMeBA today for more information on how you can attend this meeting and contribute to AMeBA’s mission of promoting the science and practice of behavior analysis in Maine.
“A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” ~ B.F. Skinner
