The Texas Association for Behavior Analysis (TxABA) organization is saddened and outraged by the senseless deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and most recently George Floyd (amongst many others). These atrocities have caused unnecessary and unimaginable devastation to countless families and communities. We recognize that these are not uncommon and isolated events, but rather parts of many events underscoring decades of systemic racism.
TxABA is dedicated to compassionate scientific progress and service provision. The organization recognizes its role in contributing to the education and scientific work related to cultural progress, and the dismantling of discriminatory institutions and practices. TxABA currently has a Diversity, Inclusivity, and Equity group that is formulating a specialized committee. This committee’s mission is to engage in activities that promote diversity, inclusion, and equity as it pertains to its members, constituents, conference attendees, and the community at large. Please join us in contributing to a progressive and socially conscious community.

March 16, 2020: TxABA 2020 Will Be Live Streamed
Dear TxABA members, friends, and colleagues:
Events over the past two weeks have evolved rapidly, upending the way that we all live and operate in our daily lives. Because of the speed at which developments have occurred, it has been difficult to react in real-time. On March 6, TxABA announced that we would hold our conference as planned. Less than a week later, on March 12, we announced that our Executive Council was meeting to determine how to respond to the ever-evolving situation.
Since our last update, the city of San Antonio placed a 7-day ban on events of more than 500 people, and the CDC changed their guidelines to recommend that all gatherings of more than 50 people be canceled or postponed. TxABA recognizes the risk that the COVID-19 pandemic poses, and we are dedicated to preserving the health and safety of our community. Therefore, our Executive Council announces today that TxABA will not hold an in-person conference. Instead, we will be live streaming our conference presentations on the days (April 24-26, 2020) and at the times we had originally planned.
We do not yet have all the details finalized, but rest assured that we will be in communication with all attendees, presenters, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff regarding next steps. What we can say is that if you are already registered for the conference and still wish to attend, you need not take any further action. If you would like to cancel your registration, we will allow you to do so at no penalty. For those of you who would still like to register for the conference, we will extend the registration deadline until 11:59pm CST April 23, 2020.
If you made a reservation at the Hyatt Regency or Grand Hyatt hotels, your reservation will be automatically canceled and a refund will be issued for any reservations for which they currently hold deposits.
We would like to thank you all for your patience during these tumultuous times while we determined how to respond. We are grateful to have the opportunity to continue to hold the Annual TxABA Conference, and we are excited to explore a new avenue for supporting our community.
The TxABA Executive Council
