The Maryland Association for Behavior Analysis (MABA) held its 23rd Annual Meeting virtually on December 3-4, 2020. Our conference was devoted to the dissemination of behavior analysis, both basic and applied, to our members from the Mid-Atlantic area. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to hold our conference in person and held it virtually. We were fortunate to have solid attendance with this new format. We welcomed workshops presented by Matthew Brodhead (Michigan State University) and Peter Gerhardt (EPIC School). Our conference included presentations from Bridget Taylor (Alpine Learning Group), Andrew Craig (Upstate Medical University), Nicole Gravina (University of Florida), Matthew Johnson (Johns Hopkins University), Caio Miguel (California State Sacramento), and Lorri Unumb (The Unumb Center).

We had a virtual expo and poster session for sponsors and poster presentations. Poster presenters included staff and students from organizations such as the University of Maryland, Baltimore County; the Kennedy Krieger Institute; and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. We would like to thank our sponsors for continuing to support the efforts of MABA.

At the conclusion of the conference, Meaghan Gregory (Kennedy Krieger Institute) stepped down as president, Alison Kozlowski (Kennedy Krieger Institute) assumed the office of president, and Tamara Marder (Johns Hopkins University) was elected president-elect. Elizabeth Masler (Kennedy Krieger Institute) was elected member-at-large. Nicole Hausman stepped down as co-director, and John Borrero (UMBC) accepted a co-director position. We would like to thank our Executive Committee for their time and dedication.

The 24th Annual Meeting was held on December 2-3, 2021 in Baltimore. For more information about our chapter, please visit
