Questionnaire for Potential Delegates
Overview of the Role of a Delegate
Although each delegation is unique because it is designed to meet local needs, delegates usually travel for a period of 7–10 days initially, volunteer their time, and cover their own expenses, if necessary. A delegate must be a well-established behavior analyst and have expertise in one of the areas needed in the host country, such as the history of behavior analysis, conceptual framework, basic and applied research, developmental disabilities, education, or organizational behavior management.
Delegates must be committed to continue their efforts on behalf of the host country and work toward a long-term plan that includes initiatives for post-delegation development. While traveling, delegates conduct seminars, network, give formal presentations, meet with media representatives, and engage in other activities designed to promote dissemination and the establishment of behavior analysis.
