The Maryland Association for Behavior Analysis (MABA) was founded in 1998 to serve as a scientific and professional reference group for those in Maryland who embrace the principles and practices of behavior analysis. The driving forces behind this organization were Wayne Fisher, Michael Cataldo, and Lynn Bowman. Since its inception, one of the primary activities of the organization has been to organize and sponsor an annual meeting to serve as a forum for the presentation of scientific and technological achievements as well as for discussion of the affairs of the organization.
Since its inception, MABA has grown to over 300 members and has brought together behavior analysts from the Mid-Atlantic region, including: researchers, faculty, direct care personnel, students, and psychologists.
MABA has provided behavior analysts in this region an opportunity to learn from distinguished speakers. The activities of behavior analysts in this region have included work in the areas of drug addiction, education, developmental disabilities, pediatric feeding, and basic behavioral research.
