General Information - Updated 4/4/2024


TxABA is partnering with Behavior Live again this year to provide attendees with in-person, live-stream, and asynchronous conference presentation options (all included in 2024 Conference Registration). The asynchronous presentations will be available to conference attendees for about 3 months after the conference on Behavior Live (please note that the asynchronous presentations will only be available to individuals who have purchased conference registration before the end of the conference - April 14th).


The hotel room block is closed and the hotel is sold out Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. If you haven't booked your hotel room yet, don't worry, there are plenty of hotels nearby.


The hotel is working with a neighboring parking garage to handle parking during the conference. The hotel will direct vehicles to the overflow parking garage. If you are driving, please allow extra time for Houston traffic and parking. The 'depart at' feature on Google maps can assist with planning your drive time.


The hotel has a small restaurant, a grab-and-go market, and room service. If you use the hotel's grab-and-go market called The Launch, there are tables set up in the Attendee Lounge/Exhibitor Hall in Discovery Center Level One. There are many restaurants in the area that are walkable or a short drive.


The conference starts with the Welcome Event from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm on Thursday, April 11, 2024. The Exhibitor Booths will be open with appetizers and a cash bar. Conference badge pick-up and conference registration will be open during this time. We recommend making plans to attend Thursday night to pick up your conference badge to avoid the Friday morning rush. See below for schedule information.


TxABA offers pre-conference workshops on Thursday April 11th during the day. Pre-conference workshops are a separate registration from the annual conference registration and seating is limited for in-person. There is a live stream option for 3 workshops. For detailed information, please visit here.


The OBM Network Conference is joining us this year on Thursday April 11th. The OBM Network Conference is a separate registration, that includes CEUs, from the annual conference registration.For detailed information, please visit here.


If you are planning to attend live-stream and/or catch the presentations asynchronously, please log into Behavior Live (BL) website or app with the same email address as your TxABA account that you used to purchased registration. BL will send out access instructions a few days before the conference.


If you are planning to attend in-person, please have a photo id and the email address associated with your TxABA account ready. If you have already registered then proceed directly to badge pickup. If you need to register or pay with check then please proceed to registration. Both will be located in Discovery Center, look for the flags.


We recommend that attendees download the Behavior Live app prior to the conference. Attendees will use the Behavior Live at the conference to scan in and out of presentations, with TxABA volunteers and staff in the presentation rooms to assist. Through the Behavior Live app attendees can view the schedule, read bios & abstracts, ask questions during presentations to be answered at the end, and share their information with exhibitors to make connections.

Group or 3rd Party Registration/Payment

If you are registering someone else for the conference then we recommend you use the group & 3rd party registration feature. This feature will allow you to print an invoice to submit to your company prior to payment.

If a different department in your company/district will be paying for registration then please confirm with them how they will pay before selecting "pay by check." We cannot change to a card payment once that has been selected and you may need to redo the entire group registration at the current price. Please reach out or ask the person who will be submitting payment to reach out to txaba@txaba.org if there are any concerns or if there were difficulties previous years.

If you have a vendor packet for a school district then please email the vendor packet to txaba@txaba.org. Please allow up to 7 business days for this to be completed, we are a small organization with part-time staff.

When you purchase conference registration there is a place to indicate your attendance preference of whether you plan to attend the conference in-person or online. For planning purposes, if you plan to attend any portion of the conference in person then please select in-person. This allows us to better plan for the conference and ensure that we do not sell out for in-person attendance.


Groups of 10 or more individuals will receive a group registration discount of $10 per person, this will automatically be applied to your invoice. To register a group, please use the group registration form. Before starting a group registration, check that everyone has a TxABA account. To get a member conference registration price on the group registration, the individual must be a current member or you need to select to purchase their membership on the group registration form. To receive the RBT and student discounts, the individual needs to have this setup in their accounts before they are added to the group registration. You may purchase registrations, memberships, and CEUs for the individuals on your group registration. For group registrations, you do not need to indicate if each individual is planning to attend in person or online.
