We've already breezed through the first three months of the year, so its time to check in with my goal review.
By the end of December, 2018, I will have obtained my BCBA certification. I've applied! My FIT coursework transcript should be on its way now, so hopefully the board is verifying my application as I type 🤞🏻so I can apply to sit for the exam in May! It was kind of a sad experience to wrap it all up, but I am also very excited to have it all completed!
By the end of December 2018, I will have attended at least 3 conferences, including at least one, not ABA specific. Well, I'm booked into at least 2 ABA conferences this year, tossing up what my third non-ABA conference will be.
By the end of December 2018, I will have submitted at least 2 abstracts for posters/presentations to conferences. I'm still sitting at submitting 1 abstract so far this year, but that abstract was successful, and I am working on my poster for ABAI in San Diego, in May!
By the end of December 2018, I will have participated by writing responses to at least 2 questions, in regards to four journal articles. I feel that much like last year, this goal is going to fall by the wayside. I need to look at why I am unable to complete it each time, and I think I may need to re-write the goal and state that I will *read* a certain number of articles in a year. I want to do more with the articles, as I do actually read (well, skim!) quite a few articles each month for client programming, but the aim of this goal was to engage in discussion with others about articles. Still undecided as to what I'll do with this goal. (PS - If any of my colleagues are reading this and want to help me with this goal, let's get the journal club up and running again!)
By the end of December 2018, I will have one other Program Supervisor working with me at GSBS. The beginning of this year has been phenomenal. So much has happened, and quickly. I am still tracking well towards this goal, and hopefully find the right fit too.
By the end of December 2018, GSBS will have at least one workshop available to be delivered to the community and public. My Senior BT's and I have been generally discussing this, but I will start to put my project list up, so we can start to work on the different projects, including workshops!
