Business Meeting #614
History of Behavior Analysis SIG
Monday, May 25, 2020
7:00 PM–7:50 PM
Marriott Marquis, Level M4, Independence E
Chair: Edward K. Morris (University of Kansas)
Presenting Authors:

The purpose of this meeting is to address the SIG's aim, mission, objectives, and purview by proposing and voting on by-laws. The by-laws will establish positions, policies, and procedures for the SIG's governance and its succession (e.g., an Executive Council, Treasurer, Secretary) and committees with chairs for the SIG's activities (e.g., an awards program, bibliographies, communications, syllabus bank; identifying and creating archives; membership and website committees). ABAI and SIG members interested in election to the SIG's governance and service on its committees should attend (or inform the SIG president prior to the meeting of their interests). Our aim is to advance behavior analysis nationally and internationally through its history and historiography. Our mission is to cultivate and nurture, enrich and improve, and disseminate the field’s history and historiography. Our objectives are to enhance teaching -- course content and pedagogy; research—presentations, publications, and workshops; and service -- leadership, governance, and communications. Our purview is the field’s long past, short history, and recent origins. Our audience includes behavior analysts, other scientists and humanists, and the public at large.
