The Training and Education Committee is pleased to recognize Dr. Nanette Perrin for her extraordinary volunteer service as APBS Coordinator of BCBA Continuing Education Credits associated with both the APBS Annual Conference and our ongoing webinars. For the past several years, Nan has invested a significant amount of time and effort in both reviewing conference and webinar proposals to determine whether each meets various criteria to award BCBA CEUs and processing the necessary paperwork associated with the award of CEUs earned by participants. The award of CEUs is an important feature of professional development offered through APBS, and Nan’s exemplary efforts in this regard are greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Nanette, for your outstanding volunteer work in support of APBS!
