In the last year, our chapter has been quite inactive as a result of a re-organization following the resignation of our President and a Board Member. Our mission remains the same which is to promote the regulation and advancement of the discipline of behavior analysis. We continue to be committed to ensuring the ethical, effective, and humane use of behavior analysis; advocating for funding mandates and evidence-based interventions; providing opportunities for continuing education; disseminating applied and basic research; supporting the activities of ABAI; and supporting the expansion of certification options for those currently providing behavior analytic services and those who might do so in the future. Furthermore, the outlook of this chapter moving forward will be to further engage those across our region to join our mission. This has already begun following a recent presentation at the Virtual Autism Symposium hosted by Mico University College.
