Hello from New President


commitment and look forward to his continued support as a member of NYSABA. I also want to thank Bobby Newman for his dedication and service to NYSABA as a former Representative-at-Large. However, Bobby will continue to serve on the Board as the chair of our ad-hoc Fundraising committee and I greatly look forward to his continued involvement.


Finally, I want to welcome our new Board members. Tricia Moss recently transitioned from her role as Secretary to President-elect, and I am grateful for her continued service to our Board. I am also pleased to welcome back Vicki Madaus-Knapp, our current Secretary, as her commitment to the NYSABA organization throughout the years has been unwavering. Lastly, I am excited to have two new members join our Board, Ken Shamlian and Elizabeth Drago, both Representatives-at-Large. Ken and Elizabeth demonstrate an outstanding commitment to the field of behavior analysis within NY State and I look forward to their increased involvement and service to the NYSABA organization.


The dedication of the NYSABA Board and the members of the organization is essential to maintaining the integrity of behavior analysis in our state. Therefore, I again thank you all for your commitment and I look forward to working with you this upcoming year.
