Why become an ORABA member?

f To support community education

ORABA hosts quarterly meetings with expert guest speakers who educate our community on important topics in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. Your membership fees allow us to reserve meeting rooms, compensate our speakers, and provide continuing education credits to attendees. ORABA hosts yearly supervision training workshops and provides guidance to students seeking certification or degrees in ABA.

Every Certified Member will receive credit for two free CEUs, to use at any of our quarterly presentations during active membership.

o To create a strong professional network

Your membership strengthens communication and collaboration between providers and consumers of ABA-based practices. ORABA members will receive the latest news on public policies affecting ABA practitioners and consumers, and have opportunities to advocate for their interests in new and emerging policies that affect how ABA-based therapies are practiced in Oregon. ORABA members take an active role in legislative issues affecting our practice and consumers, attending legislative sessions and serving on committees. ORABA quarterly meetings regularly include town hall discussions and workgroups to share information about legislative and insurance issues and promote collaboration among providers.
