The mission of the California Association for Behavior Analysis (CalABA) is to promote the science and practice of behavior analysis. Any material it posts, disseminates, prints, or circulates, whether to its own members or to others, must be congruent with this mission and with the Behavior Analyst Certification Board's Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts.
This policy applies to all advertising matters and materials. Typically, these include:
Presentations at the annual CalABA conference (addresses, symposia, panel discussions, posters, workshops) are to be devoted to scholarly, scientific, and professional content rather than advertising or marketing services, products, materials, job openings, or the like. Conference presenters who wish to advertise or sell services, books, manuals, test materials, software, hardware, audio or visual material, or employment opportunities must do so via an exhibit booth or the job fair at the conference, and/or other suitable CalABA advertising outlets.
CalABA reserves the right to accept or reject any materials as described in the preceding sections at its discretion and without explanation. Anyone submitting materials by their submission agrees to this policy.
Reasons for rejection may include, but are not limited to:
Individuals or organizations wishing to advertise with CalABA must submit an application that includes contact information, the material for the advertisement, and a brief explanation as to how the advertisement and/or the advertiser relates to behavior analysis. All application forms will include the CalABA advertising policy.
An Advertising Committee is established as a standing committee of CalABA, for the purpose of reviewing advertising applications. All applications are reviewed by two members of the Advertising Committee. If they disagree as to whether the applcation should be accepted or rejected, the Chair of the Advertising Committee breaks the tie and renders a decision. Decisions are communicated to applicants via the CalABA Executive Director or his or her designated proxy.
