In 2012, AMeBA started in Maine with just four members meeting to discuss the ethical responsibility for Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to have an ABA association in Maine. We became incorporated in 2014 as Association for Maine Behavior Analysis (AMeBA), and have grown to over a hundred members. In 2014, we also held our first annual conference.
We have worked hard over the last several years to meet regularly to discuss current issues in our state regarding our profession (including licensure and billing). We have been seeking guidance from other well established groups such as Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) and Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA).
This year we are looking to further grow our memberships, becoming a non-profit, and host our fourth conference in 2018!
“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
