ABAI Student members constitute a significant proportion of the association's total membership. The ABAI Student Committee's mission is to provide organizational support for ABAI Student members in order to promote participation in ABAI, as well as professional growth, and to enable members to contribute to the science of behavior analysis.
The Student Committee of ABAI consists of three Student members who are elected by current Student members to serve three-year terms (current, past, and elect).
In order to practice behavior analysis in Hawaii, you MUST be licensed. Instructions are listed on the application and include two different options for verification of certification from the BACB / DCCA Website: Behavior Analyst licensing program. As your state ABAI chapter, we are committed to providing our members with information pertinent to our practice here in Hawai’i. If you are not already a member for 2018 and would like to support our work here please consider joining HABA, anyone with an interest can be a member!
