Become an ORABA Member

Why become an ORABA member?


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. In addition, starting 2019, members will be able to watch recordings of past presentations.


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.

How do I become an ORABA member?

Membership follows the calendar year. If you sign up on or after September 1st, your membership will be good through December 31st of the following calendar year. Please select the membership type that fits you best.

You will start by filling out an ORABA membership form where you can register for our practitioner directory (for businesses) and our member email list. Please take a few minutes to fill out the form. Providing ORABA with your membership data helps us to offer professional support and workshops that match your needs and interests and we’ll need your permission to add to you our email list. If you would like to be listed on our practitioner directory, please make sure to fill out the sections about your business. You may update your information, such as your email address, at any time through your account by logging in to our website.
