The Society for Behavioral and Developmental Pediatrics encourages member involvement. We currently offer 8 Committees, 4 (SIGs) Special Interest Groups, and 4 Sections to support the society, our members, and the field of child behavior and development.
Function: SDBP Committees exist to implement the SDBP Strategic Plan or essential operational functions of the Society. Committee leaders work with the Board to develop projects and/or products to meet the goals of the SDBP Strategic Plan and Committees implement the projects and/or develop the products.
Membership: Membership in most Committees is open to all members of SDBP, but with the consent of the Board a Committee may limit membership if necessary to carry out the core functions of the Committee. Committee leaders may appoint sub-committees to implement specific projects.
Function: SDBP SIGs exist to allow members with common interests to work together on projects designed to improve clinical care, education, research, advocacy, or SDBP functions.
Membership: SIGs are open to all members of SDBP.
Function: SDBP Sections exist to allow members with common professional backgrounds or experiences to obtain professional support and/or work together on projects designed to improve clinical care, education, research, advocacy, or SDBP functions.
Membership: Sections are open to members of SDBP with the professional background or common experience for which the Section was designed.
