A Brief History of NCABA 1989-2014 The First 25 Years Selected NCABA Memories Including Excerpts from ABAI Newsletter 2003 On the History of NCABA (Cue the harp music) Duke Schell
NCABA 1988: In the beginning… NCABA Founders NCABA Founders Rod Realon Vicki Canipe Carolyn Green Jim Phillips Modeled after FABA, co-founded in 1980 by Jon Bailey. Two funny notes about our nameNCABA. Northern California ABA chapter was upset when we appeared at ABA having the same name. When we initially tried to get NCABA.org as a web domain name, we were quite surprised to find that it was already taken by the Nations Capitol Area Bowling Association!
The Growth of Affiliated Chapters NCABA 1988 FABA 1980 ABA 1974
The Shaping of NCABA Roots of NCABA at WCC were planted by Jim and Judy Favell, first-generation graduates of the behavior analysis program at the University of Kansas, who moved to WCC in 1970. Behavior analysis at WCC flourished when the Favells recruited Denny Reid in 1982. Denny then developed a longstanding research program with several collaborators including Carolyn Green, Marsha Parsons, and Maureen Schepis, which continues to the present day.
A State of Behavior Analysis Excellence Several exceptional behavior analysts were already in NC, including Fred Keller, Sam Odom & Greg Olley at UNC-Chapel Hill, John Staddon at Duke University, Rosemery Nelson, Arnold Rincover & Steven Hayes at UNC-Greensboro, Jeannie Golden at ECU, Carol Pilgrim at UNC- Wilmington, Fred Spooner & Peter Lamal at UNC-Charlotte, and Steve Schroeder & Andy Wheeler at the Murdoch Center.
NCABA…A Matter of Consequences NCABA set the occasion for the annual conference to occur to share the data and reinforcers. Through these conferences NCABA reached out beyond the original core of behavior analysts working in public residential IDD facilities to different people and areas of practice such as autism, regular education students, parents, animal training, and human operant work.
NCABA…A Matter of Consequences NCABA developed awards recognizing outstanding behavior analytic work. Fred Keller was the first recipient of the NCABA award that bears his name at the inaugural conference in 1990. Brian Iwata was instrumental in the development of the Outstanding Poster Award in 1993 by giving NCABA an initial endowment for monetary prizes. In 1994 NCABA began to present the Technical Utilization Award for the outstanding practice of behavior analysis by a person in a para- professional position who had not been in graduate-level training in the field.
Passing the Behavior Analysis Torch NCABA showcases a student symposium at the annual conference and directly encourages student participation in the poster session. NCABA recognizes an outstanding student with an award and monetary prize and includes a Student Representative elected yearly by the student membership of NCABA to the Board. Jeannie Golden, NCABA President 1996-1997 Martin Ivancic, NCABA President 1994-1995 Carol Pilgrim, ABAI President 2001-2002
Extra Goodies In 1998 NCABA received a North Carolina Proclamation on Behavior Analysis by Governor James B. Hunt, Jr. that recognized the importance of behavior analysis in improving the lives of the citizens of North Carolina. A second North Carolina Proclamation on Behavior Analysis was declared by Governor Michael F. Easley in 2001.
To the Edge… The NCABA 2001 Conference Budget 2001 NCABA Best Case So-So Worst Case Projections 75 people 50 people 25 people Income$9875$6750$3875 Expense$5321$5321$5321 Profit/(Loss)$4554$1429($1446) To the best of my recollection, we did So-So and lived to fight another day, or in this case, have another annual conference!

NCABA History Tid Bits Where did the Do Things Award Come From?
NCABA History Tid Bits Mary Riordan, you and I would frequently talk about marketing behavioral sayings, and one of them was "Do Things." I remember a sheet with several ideas on it. "Do Things" was the most generic one I thought might sell. I recall that I bought the shirt for myself for my birthday (November 1 st ), and at that time it was a big expense. I believe it was done at the K-Mart on Duval St in Tallahassee. I am sure it was a Friday, and that is a Dunk's beer and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The idea was that the only way to contact reinforcement is to behave. The idea in the picture was to present a bunch of things at one time-- including the words on the shirt. I can't remember any of the other ideas. Later, I thought Behavior Counts (from FABA) was one of the best ideas, but this was the only prototype we made from those marketing talks.
