Application for APBA Membership

The APBA has three categories of membership and various subclasses. Membership is for 12 months from the date dues payment is received. Members receive a subscription to the monthly electronic newsletter, the APBA Reporter; the opportunity to purchase professional liability insurance at group rates (for most U.S. members); access to valuable resources on the APBA website (archived material, including back issues of the Reporter; information on insurance coverage of ABA services; materials on professional credentialing of ABA practitioners; results of APBA surveys; bibliographies of applied research; and more); access to expert advice on many aspects of practice; and reduced registration, workshop, and CEU fees at the annual APBA convention.

Please consider supporting APBA's vital work on behalf of ABA practitioners and consumers by adding $100 to regular membership dues to become a Sustaining Member.

It is expected that all members will act in accordance with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc. (BACB) Guidelines for Responsible Conduct for Behavior Analysts.

Once you have completed the application, you will receive an email with instructions on how to pay for your membership later, at a more convenient time. You will also have the option to pay immediately through the website.

You will not be able to access members-only areas of this website until your membership has been paid.
