Your responses on the following form will help ABA to better understand our membership and ensure appropriate representation of the membership in all facets of our programs, services, committees, board of directors, and educational content. Questions that have more than one possible answer are multiple-select enabled, and most questions also have a write-in field option. All questions are optional. We hope this survey is inclusive and allows for the nuance and fluidity of identity, while also recognizing demographic data collection is a complex and imperfect endeavor. This information will never be used to discriminate, but rather aims to assist ABA in our efforts toward equity and inclusion. By filling out this survey, you give ABA permission to share aggregated information with the media and partners in appropriate circumstances. While ABA will know who submitted each survey, ABA will never share individual responses. 

About ABA
