Become a Member

Membership in the association is open to any currently certified provider of Behavior Management in the State of Indiana. Association dues are collected from active members on an annual basis in the first quarter of the year.

As you consider membership, please review the following benefits the association can provide:

  • IN-ABC provides a forum for Behavioral Consultants across the state to network with one another. Sharing resources, resolving systemic conflict and planning for the future of our profession is commonplace amongst IN-ABC members.
  • IN-ABC provides a direct link to timely information communicated from state entities.
  • Each individual behavioral consultant is responsible for meeting the State of Indiana’s annual requirement of 10 CEUs. To help members in their efforts to meet this requirement, IN-ABC provides multiple CEU opportunities each year. CEU credits are often available at periodic meetings for no additional cost and the registration fee for our Annual Conference includes all applicable CEU credits.
