This year’s Annual Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) Convention was held virtually with 300 live and simulated sessions, over 1,300 presenters, hundreds of poster presentations, and numerous workshops and exhibitors. We are delighted to have been a part of the largest online convention in behavior analysis history!
In an effort to increase attendee engagement in their first virtual conference, ABAI created a program in which conference participants earned achievement badges and points for conference related activities such as attending sessions, networking with fellow attendees, participating in question and answer sessions, and visiting exhibitor’s booths. More than 3000 people attended the conference and were enrolled in the program. We are proud to announce that Beacon’s own Deb Z., a BCBA and Regional Director, placed 17th overall, which is the top 1%!
Another achievement badge involved conference attendance. This was awarded to conference goers who attended 1000 minutes (almost 17 hours) or more of presentation content. Congratulations to the following staff who earned this award: Amy M, Amy R, Bob R, Charlie N, Dan A, Deb Z, Jeff F, Kendra S, Kim B, Lisa T, Monica M, Paulo G, Steve R, Sue R, and Tammy H.
Beacon is proud to have a team of dedicated professionals who prioritize professional development, even outside of working hours during the Memorial Day Weekend. They set high expectations for clinical excellence for themselves and understand that ongoing professional development is essential. We are proud to have such skilled and committed clinicians on the Beacon team.
