Mass Email Service

The BACB mass email service allows behavior-analytic organizations to communicate with BACB certificants for commercial-use purposes, such as advertising job or continuing education opportunities. To use the mass email service, please read the following policies and procedures and submit an application. If approved, the BACB will create and deliver the specified email on behalf of the requesting organization.

Please note the following information before using the mass email service:

  • The mass email service is available solely at the discretion of the BACB.
  • The BACB does not distribute certificant contact information under any circumstances.
  • The mass email service is a pre-pay service. No work will be performed on an approved application until proof of payment is received.
  • Applicants cannot send more than one email (follow-ups included) within a 7-day period. If a conflict occurs, applicants will be notified and offered alternative send-date options.
  • The BACB is not responsible for longer-than-standard review or processing times caused by a lack of response from the applicant or edits/changes requested late during processing.
  • Although applicants may identify a preferred delivery date, the BACB cannot guarantee that the email will be sent on that date. If the delivery date is critical, we recommend that the application is submitted as far in advance of the requested delivery date as possible.
  • The BACB will inform applicants of any concerns before an email’s release, but the BACB is not responsible for engagement results of emails sent through its system.

The first step in using the BACB mass email service is submitting an application. Please read through the following policies and procedures and then click the Mass Email Application button at the bottom of the page.

Once you submit an application, the BACB will review it and provide a determination within 3 standard business days (i.e., not including weekends, holidays, or BACB office closures).

If your application is approved, you will receive an invoice and a confirmation of approval. You must pay the mass email service fee no later than 14 days after you receive the invoice. Once payment is received, the BACB will place your application in the mass-email queue and begin crafting your email (i.e., this typically takes 7 days). Once your email has been crafted, you will be asked to review it. Additional edits may be submitted at this time. When you have no further edits and provide explicit approval, the email will be scheduled for delivery on the requested date or another agreed-upon date if rescheduling is required.

If your application is denied, you will receive a notice of denial and an explanation. Your application will then be closed. A denied application cannot be reopened or altered, but you may submit a new application.
