We have posted the minutes from our 2016 Business Meeting in Chicago, ILL. One of our goals is to form committees soon based on some of the needs discussed in the meeting (and identified in the minutes).
The Aubrey Daniels Institute has a fantastic timeline covering the years 1913-2008. Events covered include the "discovery of shaping" (1943), Don Baer's recruitment to the University of Kansas (1965), and Azrin and Foxx's publication of Toilet Training in Less than a Day.
There's a new Facebook page that should be of interest to our members. Posts so far include links to Wikipedia entries of eminent and early psychologists, their autographs, and an original handwritten poem written by the first woman to receive a Ph.D. in psychology--Milicent Washburn Shinn.
Just a reminder that the Annual ABAI Convention is near. Register now to save money and avoid long lines.
Also, be sure to stop by these two History of Behavior Analysis (HoBA) Special Interest Group (SIG) events:

The purpose of the business meeting is to review the SIG’s current status, that is, how well it is addressing its purpose, mission, and objectives (e.g., its Listserv) and consider new activities that may further advance them (e.g., a website, SIG symposia, an awards program).
