2016-2017 Compensation & Benefits Survey

Order Today! 

It's been a longtime challenge for associations to find the best ways to fairly compensate employees while still attracting and retaining the most desirable candidates. Underpay, and employees will eventually look for a better offer. Overpay, and your budgets and profitability will suffer. That’s why it’s imperative that you place your order for Association Forum’s 2016-2017 Compensation & Benefits Survey.

This annual survey is an excellent tool to help you benchmark your salaries, benefits and office practices against the local association management marketplace. Order your copy, today!

Individual Pages: Individual Position Summary Pages for Job Seekers available! If you are looking for salary information for one position, you can purchase the position summary for only the job you are looking for. Once you place your order, you will be asked via email to select the position you are seeking. See the list of job descriptions here. (PDF) For more information, contact membership@associationforum.org


All responses to this survey are strictly confidential. Individual responses are not identified, and only a summary of the aggregate data is produced. The data is managed directly by the Management Association, the third party that tabulates the data and produces the final industry report. All survey data is kept secured and destroyed at the end of the reporting cycle.

For questions or to inquire about 2017-2018 participation please email Association Forum's Membership Team at membership@associationforum.org.
