The ABAI Student Committee is comprised of three elected Student Representatives who serve on the ABAI Executive Council for a 3-year term (current, past, elect). The Student Committee is also comprised of three subcommittees made up of students representing their respective ABAI accredited behavior analysis programs. Student program representatives serve on one of the three subcommittees—the events subcommittee, dissemination subcommittee, or awards subcommittee.
