Business Meeting #341
History of Behavior Analysis Special Interest Group
Monday, May 30, 2016
6:00 PM–6:50 PM
Vevey 1 & 2, Swissotel
Chair: Edward K. Morris (The University of Kansas)
Presenting Authors:
The purpose of the business meeting is to review the SIG’s vision (i.e., to advance and expand behavior analysis through history and historiography), its mission (i.e., to cultivate and nurture, enrich and improve, and communicate and disseminate the field’s history), and its strategies for addressing them (e.g., maintaining a Listserv and a website). At last year's meeting, we established our first strategic initiatives, among them creating a syllabus bank for instructors, developing lists of relevant archives, appointing an historian in every SIG and ABAI affiliate chapter, and preparing bibliographies of published and electronic sources. We will review our progress in these and other initiatives. Still others await (e.g., an annual ABAI HoBA symposium, an awards program). Anyone interested in the field’s history and historiography and advancing the forgoing (or other) initiatives is welcome to attend the meeting.
