Abstract: The ABAI Expo at the annual convention is one of the most important events for students to network and learn about other programs. Each year dozens of graduate programs set up posters where faculty and staff are on hand to talk to potential applicants and welcome their incoming and returning students. If you are considering applying to graduate school or have recently been accepted, this event is a must attend! To make sure you can make the best of it, the Student Committee will be on hand with tips, guides, and face-to-face support. Be sure to make the Student Committee Outreach Table your first stop, and then visit the Student Committee's own poster! Student members, composed of undergraduate and graduate level individuals, constitute a significant portion of the association's total membership. The ABAI Student Committee's mission is to provide organizational support for ABAI Student members in order to promote participation in ABAI, as well as professional growth, and to enable members to contribute to the science of behavior analysis. The ABAI Student Committee is organized by three elected Student Representatives who serve on the ABAI Executive Council for a 3-year term (current, past, elect). The Student Committee is comprised of three subcommittees made up of students representing their respective ABAI accredited behavior analysis university programs. Student program representatives serve on one of the three subcommittees 'the events subcommittee, dissemination subcommittee, or awards subcommittee. The purpose of this poster is to update students on current activities, facilitate conversation on professional development, and attract nominees for student committee and subcommittee positions.
