Presenting Authors:

The purpose of the HoBA SIG Business Meeting is to review the SIGs vision (i.e., to advance and expand behavior analysis through its history and historiography) and mission (i.e. to cultivate and nurture, enrich and improve, and communicate and disseminate the fields history), but primarily to develop strategic initiatives. At this years meeting, we will discuss our initiatives in the areas of (a) teaching HoBA (e.g., developing a repository of course syllabi for HoBA instructors); (b) archiving the HoBA (e.g., the status of HoBA archives at the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology in Akron, OH; creating a list of HoBA archives); (c) appointing historians (e.g., in ABAI SIG and affiliate chapters); (d) preparing bibliographies of published materials (e.g., articles) and electronic resources (e.g., videos); (e) expanding the SIG's website ( (e.g., as a repository for materials and links to other websites); and (f) enhancing the SIG's ABA Expo Poster (e.g., posting pictures of unidentified behavior analysts). ABAI members interested in the SIG's vision and mission and working on the foregoing initiatives and planning new ones are invited to attend.
