• supervisor responsibilities and qualifications
• supervision amount and structure
• group supervision
• documentation of supervision.

Please see our December 2014 newsletter for more details.

Board of Directors Elections

We are pleased to announce the results of our spring Board of Directors election. Dr. Bridget Taylor was elected to serve a second three-year term and Dr. Angelika Anderson (international representative) and Mr. Eli Newcomb (masters-level representative) were each elected to serve three-year terms as new directors beginning in August. We extend our congratulations to the newly elected directors and offer our thanks to all of the candidates for running. We also wish to thank all of the certificants who nominated candidates and voted in this important election.

CEU Opportunity: Task List Survey Invitation

We have begun the process that will lead to the development of the next edition of the task list for the BCBA and BCaBA exams. Participation from certificants is a critical part of this process.

An invitation to participate in the survey to validate the new list was emailed to BCBAs and BCaBAs earlier today. Be sure to look for the invitation in your inbox soon.

Five continuing education units (Type 5) are available for completion of the survey.
