In 2022, our chapter has been revitalized and re-organized with a full Board consisting of a President, President Elect, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary, as well as 2 Members-at Large. This Board continues to work with our partner organization, The Caribbean Association for Behavior Analysis (CABA), to further expand our reach and better serve countries across the Caribbean.                     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.

     In the last year, in collaboration with CABA, we became both a BACB and IBAO CEU provider. In addition, have held 2 Parent Corner virtual meetings, presented 1 live Supervision CEU, and 1 Member-At-Large meeting. By the end of 2022, 68 individuals became members of our organization spanning 15 countries in the Caribbean region.

     We are looking forward to another successful year with plans to provide additional CEU and podcast offerings, achievement of NGO status, and the addition of a certificant registry allowing those from the Caribbean to access supervision options to achieve goals of further certification as well as mentorship, and much more.
