Abstract: Behavior analysts often join the field to help create a better world. In addition to providing services to help change behavior to enhance quality of life, some behavior analysts provide services pro-bono or at a cost below market to those who need help but can not afford it. In addition to the service provided to society both by virtue of our profession and by those who act charitably, there is a need to provide service to our profession. This panel includes people who have engaged in this professional service through ABAI special interest groups and volunteer committees, as well as in several non-ABAI capacities. They will discuss options for any behavior analyst to engage in service to our science and practitioner community, from student to seasoned professional.
