We encourage all behavior analysts practicing in the state of Mississippi to join BAAMS! When you become a member you are able to participate in ongoing continuing education, networking, and professional development opportunities and events with other behavior analysts in your surrounding community and the state at large! Membership also allows you to vote for or serve on the organization’s Executive Council and also gives you a discount on the BAAMS annual conference registration costs. Membership is open to all persons interested in or actively engaged in teaching, research, and/or application of the principles and procedures of behavior analysis. Membership is not restricted to residents of the State of Mississippi.
We offer three different membership levels:
1. Full Member: Any individual holding (a) at least a Bachelor’s degree in behavior analysis, psychology, education, or related field, with training or professional experience in behavior analysis and whose full time professional commitment includes teaching, research, and/or practice in behavior analysis or (b) BACB certification (i.e., BCBA-D, BCBA, or BCaBA). Full members may vote and hold office. Full membership is $60 and is billed annually.
2. Affiliate Member: Any member evidencing interest in the discipline of behavior analysis, but lacking formal training therein, may apply for this class of membership. Affiliate members are entitled to all benefits except for (a) the right to vote on matters of interest to the organization, and (b) the right to hold office. Affiliate members may serve as members on BAAMS committees. Affiliate membership is $50 and is billed annually.
3. Student Member: Any individual pursuing formal training in the discipline of behavior analysis, which may include programs in behavior analysis, psychology, education, or a related field but not yet gainfully employed therein on at least a half-time basis may apply for membership in this category. Such application must be accompanied by an endorsement on letterhead by a program coordinator or program official certifying the applicant’s student status. This application will be reviewed in a manner similar to the review of those candidates for Full Member status. Student members may neither vote nor hold office, though they may serve as members on BAAMS committees. Student members do vote for the Student Representative position, and the elected student does serve on the Executive Council. Student membership is $20 and is billed annually.
