General Information


TxABA is partnering with Behavior Live again this year to provide attendees with in-person, live-stream, and asynchronous conference presentation options. When you register, there is a toggle to indicate if you plan to attend in person at the hotel at any point during the conference. This allows us to monitor for in-person attendance selling out as well as assist us in planning for conference materials. 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).


We recommend that attendees download the Behavior Live app prior to the conference. Attendees will use the Behavior Live app 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. Conference attendees will receive instructions on the app a few weeks before the conference.


The conference starts with the Welcome Event from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm on Thursday, April 27, 2023. The Exhibit Hall 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. We are developing a Thursday night information session geared towards students, RBTs, and first-time conference attendees.  Conference presentations are all day Friday, all day Saturday, and half-day Sunday. Friday is the poster session starting at around 5:30 pm and Saturday is the awards ceremony after the afternoon session. Sunday morning will include presentations, panels, and networking events until 12:15 pm. Full conference details will be available 4 weeks prior to the conference. 


TxABA offers pre-conference workshops on Thursday, April 27th between 9:00 am - 4:30 pm. Pre-conference workshops are a separate registration from the annual conference registration and seating is limited for in-person. We are now offering a live-stream option for workshops. We recommend registering early for a workshop so you don't miss the opportunity. Workshops are either 3 hours or 6 hours in duration. 


San Antonio will be celebrating FIESTA April 20-30th. This is a fun time in San Antonio with several events on the Riverwalk and nearby. Come a few days early to join in the festivities....just don't forget the conference! The hotel will give us information to share regarding parking and any nearby street closures when they receive them from the city (they estimated 4 weeks ahead of time). We recommend planning to arrive the night before workshops or presentations and planning extra time to navigate the city.


Please note that the poster submissions and student scholarship applications have closed. We are no longer able to accept applications.

COVID-19 and Sick Policy


TxABA encourages all those who can to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and to follow CDC recommendations. TxABA encourages everyone to follow CDC guidelines on masking at the time of the conference. TxABA or the Hyatt Regency may require masking at the time of the event depending on CDC recommendations. We will notify those who have already registered for the conference and post on our website any changes.


The 2023 TxABA Conference is a hybrid event and if you are not comfortable attending in person then please join us via live stream. Conference registration includes in-person, live-stream, and asynchronous viewing after the conference. If you feel ill or have any symptoms, please select the live-stream option for attending. We encourage everyone attending in person to take a COVID test before attending the conference. We appreciate everyone's efforts to reduce the likelihood of unknowingly exposing fellow attendees to COVID-19 and other illnesses.

Registration Information


Registration for the 38th annual conference will be split into three periods: early registration, regular registration, and late registration. 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.

Group Registration is Open!
