Local FABA Chapters
The primary goal of FABA’s local chapters is to promote ethical and effective application of applied behavior analysis within the various geographical areas across the state of Florida. The chapters focus on promoting the profession of Behavior Analysis in their communities and providing valuable continuing education and training to their members.
Local chapters are encouraged to foster diversity among their members and should look to include behavior analysts, program supervisors, mental health professionals, university faculty, students, administrators, teachers, social workers, and direct care professionals in their active membership.
FABA offers support to local chapters in getting started and maintaining their annual activities. Please contact the Local Chapters Chair for more information.
Information on offering CEs through the local chapters is provided below:
FABA Local Chapters may plan Continuing Education (CE) events during Local Chapter functions. Please refer to the procedures below for requesting approval of the CE event. Local Chapter members and guests should pay $10 per hour to receive CE credits. The Local Chapter keeps $8 and $2 goes to FABA. All Local Chapter CE events should provide appropriate documentation (e.g., certificate of attendance) to participants with the FABA ACE number.
FABA Local Chapters should not offer CE credits for free. During a Local Chapter function, a speaker can give a presentation at no charge, but if attendees want CEs they need to pay $10 per hour as described above.
These rules are necessary for the approval and tracking of CE events as required by the BACB. The $2 per CE payment to FABA allows payment of the annual fee to remain an Approved Continuing Education (ACE) Provider for the BACB. This allows Local Chapters to provide CEs under the FABA ACE provider agreement.
