Message from our President
Thank you all for the opportunity to lead the Hong Kong Chapter of the Association for Behavior Analysis International. As a relatively young chapter of the greater association I have several goals as your President.
In collaboration with our Board of Directors we intend to continue to increase our membership, offer ongoing opportunities for professional growth to our members and disseminate information about the science of Applied Behavior Analysis to both local Hong Kong professionals and the greater community. We have already established a survey of our members to gain feedback on the types of CEU and professional events and activities you would like offered or can host throughout the upcoming year.
Under the guidance and effort of previous Presidents a Verified Course Sequence, the first in Hong Kong (Board Certified Assisitant Behavior Analysis) was establishd in 2012 in collaboration with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). This year in conjunction with former presidents and other members of the Board of Directors our goal is to additionally establish a BCBA certification program meeting the current BACB standards. I look forward to working with all of you to make this year a great success for both HKABA and the dissemination of Behavior Analysis in Hong Kong!
Dr. Amoy Hugh-Pennie, PhD, BCBA-D
